sometimes it’s dancing – old fashioned tap

Poem #10 from tuesday night at emile’s

Back to: tuesday night at emile’s – Introduction


start your feet moving

tap-eta-tap-eta-tap

set your arms in motion
make it light speed and dazzle

tap-eta-tap-tapping

[CLAP]

shuffle around the issue
don’t break the rhythm
backwards is a special

[CLAP]

start another pattern
ratchet up to blinding
never stop smiling

[CLAP]

shimmy like the devil
hold eye contact
keep on dancing

[CLAP]

use the light to sparkle

[CLAP]

slip behind the smokescreen

[CLap]

don’t forget your roses

[clap]

keep on dancing

tap-eta-tap-eta

tap
