ALL BEAUTY AND THE SHAKE OF IT

As the beat scats
off the tarmac
through air
in an attack of sound.

As the beat seethes
across seas of limbs
in a gyration
of tease
and the fake smile.

As the beat dies
on a dime
and resurrects
itself as a lie
and breathes
this pulse.

This pulse.

You dancing
a foot away.

This pulse.
