a prelude to dancing under the stars…

Tonite I sport my father’s shirt.
He sees me from above.
Tonite I shall dance a mambo

for my mother. She’ll be dancing too.

Come blaze of sun or dark of shadows
Under the stars is where I’ll be. 
Looking up to them as I wear out my hips…
Sweating tears and smelling sweet.
