Song & Dance

Sweat-drenched keys flash piano verdicts
Rhythmic be-bop transcends time
Wiggly trumpets scream into circuits
The bassist feels his temper climb

Chaos (panic) on the ball room floor
Nightclub matchsticks burn with glee
The shaking thunder of the frat house door
The old man and his wife's bad knee

Music, dance, future, chance,
Euphoria in its grandest splendor
Romance at its utmost tender

Chaos, order, movement, stance,
Calypso corridors of pulsing trust
Improvised signals of lust
