Dance Floor

I organize a dance party
inside, the floor is lighted,
people come & go
Many dance with me,
But some only watch
ruins, only lament famine

Let the world die silently
Those who deserve death, must
die, those who canít dance will
develop unfit toes & legs
Those who shy away from light
must remain in darkness

I donít want to come out
of my bones, flesh & skin
Inside dazzles in light, dance,
Itís full of flowing crops
giggling in the sun, with power
to suppress any famine 


But, suddenly

I invited the rain
It came.  
I ordered the silent
yellow flower;
It bloomed.
The crow shouted
But I never wished  

Road traffics are so organized
today, and the guitarist
playing my favorite tune
after a long time

A boy with a puppy came
dancing under the jubilant
orange sky.

This could have been a
perfect occasion to shower you
with my singular love poem

But suddenly, 
the crow shouted.
