Dive
Stomps
Scissor
over
my neck
flip fall
Arrest
Grind
Hold my eyes in your
Stare
Break out cyclone drug
drag
a gassed boil
Rolled down to a sweat drop
Bounce on the piston
To swing out
Basie’s One o’clock jump
On the downbeat
A riptide
floor slide
Between my legs
And back
The cramp recovers in the
Vaults
Flying Charleston
black bottoms
Rump rounds
pagopago
meringue
Tango dips
Tightass foxtrots and
There was one floras
Our heads rested
On each others necks
Our bodies jack-hammered
Over the dance hall
We signed the floor
Louie & Myra ‘43
A jitterbug
Wrappedinalindyaaaa
round a jive.
