Poetry and Musings

Here is a poem from a while back! Enjoy!


The lights are erratic

But so tempting to fix upon

I was invited

But I didn’t know what I was getting myself into


The vintage machine is spinning these oval delights of joy

People are embracing this new world of neon lights

That they are holding on to

Holding them like slender cylinder fireflies


I am contorting to the rhythms and beats

In this kind of environment

Dancing can seem irregular

But it’s completely on beat


I never had this much merriment and liberation

And I haven’t had a single thing to drink

Or pleasure on the side

Just my friends and I raving
