Cape Fear

-Hello, Danielle?

-Is this Miss Danielle Bowden?

This is your new teacher calling.
-From English or Drama?

-So how you doing?

I'm just going down the list,
greeting my summer students.

You sound kind of down.
There's just been stuff
going on around here, that's all.

-Anything I can do?
-I doubt it.

Shit happens, you know,
like the t-shirt says.

You know, all that negativity,
you can use that.

What do you mean?
I'm the kind of teacher that takes
a very personal interest in his kids.

Don't mind me. Everything you're
going through, it's okay, go with it.

The awkwardness you feel,
walking down the street...

...and some leering fool is
making fun of your sexuality...

...the turmoil you feel, extra bad when
that time of the month comes around...

...the anger you feel
that your mom and dad...

...won't let you grow up
and be yourself, be a woman.

Don't suppress or deny it.
Use it in your life and work.

Okay. I mean...
I'll have to think about all that.
Class is tomorrow in Room 110, right?
No, it's been changed to the theater.
-What better place for Drama, right?

And remember, Danielle, you can use
all those fears to draw upon and learn.

You know this little tune?
"If you want a do right
"All days
"You've gotta be a
"do right
"All night man"
You can trust in me,
because I'm a do right man, okay?
