Summer Dayz Slow Danzing

slowly we drag
into a swag
slick into a hold
you fold
your weight around me
no escape

just the heart beat
patting along
to Bloodstone "Natural High"
hit heaven pitch
swung slowly into a period
not to be forgotten

Nixon's shade
on watergate
oh! so fugazi
gave way

Mick's lips
sweet lumps of "Brown Sugar"
Mothership connection finally touch down
gave birth to star child
Mayfield's "running wild"

Bruce Lee dies
marijuana alive
pot heads and the DEA
instead of crack cocaine

bell bottom pants
satin flowered shirts , mini skirts
marshmallow shoes
very first pair of Pro Keds

you dragged into my sweetheart years
how we dance this evening
in the basement
just us two
step left switch right
with no light

just a one eyed moon standing
cradling a moment
easy now biddy baby side to side
sweeping into a grown folks grind
two vines ready release unwind

This is a fun poem. Fun to read and I'll betcha', very fun to listen to being read.

Reminds me a bit of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire"...

i keep imagining acid jazz maybe downtempo
and all your texts excel in stealing tearing moulding rhythms
you have an acute sense of musicality somewhere - where the blanks lead to strikes of fiction

| Title: Hi Lepadah


I am sorry beyond measure that I am late to this party, because wow, this is
beyond good.
I cannot really find anything wrong with this. On the first read there seemed
a strange sort of disconnection of words and meaning, but this is beat poetry
in the best traditions of the genre, in my opinion, and so the layers of
different meaning implied and explicit in the words are just marvelous. I
feel nostalgia, memory, pleasure and remembrance all piling up with each new
read, and I love it.
The only reference I did not understand was “fugazi”, but of course the
sum total of all human knowledge is at my fingertips, so i looked them up,
This is nominated.
