Dance Party

To say, I been in the house a lot lately is an understatement. But I remember the hot house parties and the small dance floors and it makes me want to write. This is a poem from my up and coming book. I hope you love it!

Dance Party

the old deteriorating building erupted

with pulsating mist moving in and out of enthusiastic mouths,

sandwiched in like sardines

marinading in a discolored can

 

the faces show up in the crowd

reflecting off of flickering lights,

their bulbs nearly burned out

from the stress of shining

 

a beautiful day has given way

to a lovely night,

we are in love

with the notion of music tonight

 

we gyrate like alley cats,

we shimmy like snakes,

we snap, crackle and pop,

we bend our back till it break

 

we sweat like ice cream

in mid August next to barbecuing meat,

we locking lips with heat,

we moving our antsy feet to sweltering beats

 

we tick effortlessly

like a clock being wound up in reverse,

completing for who has the best moves

while hoping we’re not the worst…

 

we bop and hop

like the floor is on fire,

soul entranced and conscience wired,

not even an eagle can get higher

 

we bounce

like a baby in a walker,

finding a way off the ground,

we are angel bound

 

we are the popcorn in the microwave,

exploding and popping

out the constrictive bag,

we are the bright side in a society full of bad

 

the faces show up in the crowd

reflecting off of flickering lights,

their bulbs nearly burned out

from the stress of shining

 

connecting the present

to a not so distant past

as we dance…

in a old deteriorating building
