I’m Feeling Dancy evening walk in an autumn park by deep twilight she nearly killed me on her bike that’s what it’s like sitting porch-side in a lawn chair watching vegan show she shreds electric cello the moon’s glowing low caught in her tow I’m feeling dancy [like fire light] she has a charm to pull the tide I’m feeling dancy [like a neon sign] electrons rise and ignite she sings songs on the front lawn by the window pane it’s stardust falling in I catch it again counting down the seaside sounds her crackling might thunders on to cosmic heights she’s taking flight gravity’s light I’m feeling dancy [like summer night] shooting star sgraffito lines I’m feeling dancy [splash of lime] the clinking glass of sparkling wine I’m feeling dancy [in a dive] freely floating in a plane I’m feeling dancy [dawn of life] she terraforms the terrain floating astronauts shuffle space walk shoes there’s no rocket fuel like what we cannot do I’m feeling dancy [all arise] clicking cameras mark the time I’m feeling dancy [marble sky] cirrus clouds of silver shine I’m feeling dancy [burning bright] colossal rumble shakes below I’m feeling dancy [t-minus 5] all systems go

her entree arrived something turned in her face stirring fear in me she wanted to go home slender hand garnet set an engagement ring that was unexpected I accept it trees releasing leaves flipping by like the pages of a kineograph she passes like a breeze brittle smile flurried step no acquaintance that was unexpected I accept it I would have folded to her flow so low but she chose a softer no

the moonlit gravel driveway hid a glinting house key you met her in a shadowed bungalow you made out on the staircase glasses clacking faces a decade later peering down below pair of hands push on your back breaking off the branch rush of wind, crack of black you had nothing left she needed so she took your favorite nothing you shove the rancid story on a shelf in bitter brine you’re brewing acidic feelings curdle you set the bones to mending by yourself pair of hands push on your back breaking off the branch rush of wind, crack of black breaking off the branch you raised her high among the leaves sunning in the elevation of your family tree that’s your body mangled on the stairs oh you never saw it coming you couldn’t see it coming pair of hands push on your back breaking off the branch rush of wind, crack of black breaking off the branch

matchmaker you’re setting us all on fire “Man up,” he says, “Show us your face! Shove on in. Place a bet. We’re spinning a new kind of roulette! Shake a hand, breathe, you’re dead.” matchmaker you’re setting us all on fire stomping the wrestling ring frothing crowd chanting “king” flash bombs billowing shock the exit doors are chained and locked something wicked this way comes [plucks it from the box sparks it on the side] slopping kerosene on everyone [flings a careless whirling flame unto the teeming fuel and tinder] crows our villain now unmasked [waving in the blaze no one gets away] “this is fine!” matchmaker you’re setting us all on fire
