though my feet
could not 2/4
worth a damn,

they tried
when the brass
and clave
called my name;

turned our
tiny basement floor
into the palladium;

and did not mock
my self conscious

(slow dancing beneath
the blue lights

for one)

those aren't scratches
on those discs
than the
wheels of dharma,

but rain falling on
the antilles,
and mother
