a dance with a barrier. #5

June 5, 2016

 

 

a metal partition. 

a dance with a barrier.

but he stood in the rain

stood by in solidarity

and I danced with my girl. 

 

***

 

The smallest girl in the world 

Kneels on the ground 

Vomits in the grass 

while her damp brunette bob

sticks to to her face.

 

Those saucer-like eyes 

Look up at her squad

who stand by in solidarity.

 

She covers her vomit 

with a disheveled paper fan.

 

The second smallest girl in the world

gets her skull slammed into a porta potty

Strong, little manicured hands

latched into her side braid

A fist in her soft, young face. 

Tears in her soft, young eyes. 

 

I step in

to this petit millennial brawl

Thrashing and Glitter and Tears and Tanktops

near this row of human waste containers.

 

Tiny limbs with violent intentions

dance around my waist

 

a dance with a barrier.

 

We all just gotta pee.

I coo. 

My six foot three-ness 

hushes the noise.

And their friends 

embrace them

back to their chosen tribes.

 

A gentle couple let's me back in line.

it was kind 

that I stepped in

they say. 

 

I wore these sneakers here last year

Last year they got muddy

This year they got wet

 

I gotta get new sneakers.
