summer heat

13 February 2006

The rattan fan drones overhead
Prodding the sluggish humidity
Out the sunburnt windows.
Even the flies laze around
The tabletop, falling one by one
to the half-hearted flyswat.
The summer heat weighs on everyone.

let’s dance

6 February 2006

this is how we’ll go along:
first, circle each other
carefully step, don’t tread
on the other’s feet
and then if the time is right
or maybe the weather,
or whatever else factor

dance
breathe, twirl, step
breathe, swing, step relentlessly

when you feel the music
raging through your blood
surrender caution and
throw yourselves wholly into it
and as you thread your way through
the swaying bodies,
let the rhythm move you

dance
breathe, twirl, step
breathe, swing, step relentlessly

but when it feels like its over
don’t hold on too tightly because
you both will drift apart inevitably
and find somebody else
to dance with so for now

dance
breathe, twirl, step
breathe, swing, step relentlessly

still, i wish
we could dance
forever

jay or jurmane, make this into a song! 😀
