a mother takes a pole dancing lesson
tries to enrol her daughter in ballet
helicopter parents her
paints the room, removes the poster, corkboard,
watches the girls dirty dance, blames the friend
teens having fun
her brother, the accident in Cyprus, her parents
the rave, the laid back dad
the trespass
their invitation, her rejection"
