Shall We?

Shall We?
we dance
swirling like ballerinas
to a groovy disco tune
banging our heads
to the reggae, to the blues.
absurd, this dance
where you wear black lipstick and red gown
and I a glittering tightsuit,
pink tightsuit.
i've two left feet, you none (you float).
it's absurd, this absurdity
of making a playground of the floor,
sliding, swinging,
seeing stars,
sawing off limbs.
it's absurd, this dance.
but the music still plays,
your lipstick stays black,
my tightsuit glitters pink.
we dance.

beautiful absurdity. btw, is it possible for a person to be goth if he/she wears pink? or is black a requirement? haha.

well, i loved the poem. and the black lipstick and tightsuit thingie makes it more... romanticized. besides, it's a refreshing change from conformity =P

'i've two left feet, you none (you float)' i can imagine that... the absurdity made the poem beautiful.

black lipstick, pick tightsuit, reggaes, disco tunes...

careful not to step on her feet.

since when have you been dancing, corsair?

3:19 PM  
Blogger Corsarius said...

i will take care, hera. if you mean the literal dance, then i'm no dancer. but if you meant metaphorically, then...hehe, tough question ;)


(obviously the corsair is blushing way too much [or trying to blush way too much] and is not able to answer the question properly. haha!)
