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


set your arms in motion
make it light speed and dazzle



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


start another pattern
ratchet up to blinding
never stop smiling


shimmy like the devil
hold eye contact
keep on dancing


use the light to sparkle


slip behind the smokescreen


don’t forget your roses


keep on dancing
