Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously

Musical Interlude

Just outside the Creole bar
in the gravel
we laugh

emerging from the hot dark noise
with a swaggering stagger
in the face of night chill

the stars roll
like the tiny lights
across the dance floor
twinkling in their constellations
keeping a cosmic beat

we drift into a circle

almost huddling
but not quite

conversation moving
to the right

don’t hesitate your turn
move along
move along

I can see the moon
reflected in your eyes
but the color is gone
we are all the same
out here in the dark

like cats
we are grey
like cats
there are no strangers
in the alley
or the parking lot

keep the conversation moving
until we’re all full
and go back inside
to bathe in the blues
and the tiny lights
that now look like stars
in a particolored sky
