tonight we dance

We drink dust
and eat smoke
while the fire
burns within

The winter light
fades quickly
leaving a fat
lush red line
on the horizon

The animals
have all fled
their cages

And that old latin drummer
bangs on the skins

Let the party begin

(D. James)

One response to “tonight we dance

  1. I really like this – it manages to evoke the sensual haze and heat that seems to invade a party late into the night, as well as the anticipation of said evening.
    It’s short and succinct and exciting – makes me want to have a wild party!
