I'm not good at cash games but I'd just check this. You're on the button, no one has bet. You don't really have a hand to bet at. Take the free card and you might have something to bet at and have them completely dominated. Then if all goes to plan, you're in position to call the turn to a bet, or check to no bet, depending on the potential outs for the other people. Its dependent on the board though, I'd bet to try to get them off a flush draw on the turn if you hit. Then fire a biggy on the river.

I just play like you. Bet on flop is not bad. He possible to fold. His big reraise is strange . Hit 2 pair, I think and he affraid you would get flush or straight. Is he a bluffer, if yes maybe he just had flush or straight draw.
Checking behind is a bad play here. cash games in my opinion are all about long term, which means you should be playing for maximum expected value. which means when you have a large amount of equity in a pot, you bet. you need to build the pot for when you do hit, checking here you will be giving up a lot of value which will hurt you in the long run.
now, for the rejam from the donk. I feel like this player is a bad one. 57BB stack is far to short for cash game in my opinion (but i look at your table and notice a lot shorter stacks) so right away i am pegging this guy as a casual player. since im pegging him as a casual player my guess is that he caught a piece of this flop. I feel it could be something like TPTK, 2 pair, or possibly a set and lets add AK. Equilab is telling me against this range you are 40.5%. It's a close one. I think it is a fold considering the massive overbet. If MP3 of CO made this play and Jammed with their stacks i would be calling them.
