a savage peace

there is a savage peace

amid the pulsing sound

that emanates from these four walls

then sweeps along the ground

 

a rhythmic primal beat

inside this modern noise

violently subduing all

but what the soul enjoys

 

one by one it captures

the bodies on the floor

releasing inhibitions

held captive at their core

 

they twist, they turn, they spin

at near frenetic pace

shaking loose of lives they see

as cold and commonplace

 

passions once encumbered

escape from deep within

free to flow through hungry pores

and pool upon the skin

 

surrounded by the sparks

from heel strikes on parquet

they’re easily ignited

alighting hearts at play

 

knowing that tomorrow

the mundane will return

they dance as supernovas

enjoying their bright burn
