Seducing the Bees


I watched your back as you danced

The ripples of the beats pulsating in your swings

Your dance trumps magic

Your dance so intimate

I watched your elegant steps as the drums called

I watched as you danced between the iroko

Your dance mesmerized the butterflies

And as your dance seduced the bees

I realized I was dancing 

With the entire room 

Then I realized I was dancing 

In the Milky Way 

On a quivering speck amidst the galaxies
