A Spectacle’s Show

Spotlight and music
Watch her dance
Beats colouring her steps
Commanding movements
Musical notes take notice
Apparating mid-air
Bobbing to her rhythm

Watch the watchers
Hearts defibrillated
Desires syncopated
Eyes caught in her magnet
Some see the beating steps
Some follow the flowing curves
Some see the happy musical notes

Watch the spectacle
Of the spectacle
Unexpected social unison
Unrecognized merriment
A harmony of attentions
A chorus of consciousness
Beating to its own rhythm

Notes

Quarter tonic
Sugar with sugar
Sweet tongue
Semolina Lena

Noncognizant strikes
Dodge brother, dodge
Relentless moving
Those dark eyes always worth it

What I would give
To make this right
To step out of character
Or am I in one now?

Tired of this
Fearing its endlessness
The closer I am to one
The farther I am from both

When the notes I hear
Or the words, dear
My world flips
But I’m quarter built

Flipping like it’s
Practice makes perfect
Play the notes, play
As close as I can get

Limits limit
But memories punish
Flabbergasted and expectant
What are you doing? Incredulous

I am flipping and practicing
Playing notes and replaying nostalgia
Giving love like watering the parched
Learning to strike the balance

Leave me be, demons
You turn sustenance into air
After I’ve fed my soul
I shall have my peace
