Your spinning attracts a crowd
Even people on boats!
Boats with booming sound systems
to provide a soundtrack to your art
And the oohs and aahs and hooting and hollering
Faces lit by both the fires you spin
And the art you give
It happened in a park, surrounded by towering machinery, rolling hills, and a clear view of the downtown area behind the water. From dusk until nightfall. Seeing friends that I felt like I hadn’t seen in months. Someone mentioned that she thought I’d dropped off the face of the earth.
I tell you, there ain’t nothing like dancing like a salmon trying to jump upstream, with the music blasting from the boat of a curious spectator, in front of a couple of people laughing their asses off. With a guy twirling a fire staff a few feet away.
And the view was breathtaking.
