a dance with a barrier. #5


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.
