Dancing the rest of the day away with strangers

In a club with smoke in everybody’s chimney

Surfing on the floor with divers and head changers

Cool moves calling for the jiving devil in me

On the border of exhaustion in pursuit of

Another tune with Bees and Gees stayin’ alive

Needing a beer and a breather before some love

Descends from her heaven in order to revive

1 guy looking at her body without a soul

guy counting her steps from beginning to end

9 minutes or years to come up with an asshole

7 seconds of separation somewhat penned

8 poems every week for a so-called friend’s sole
