Nightclub Gig.

Post by Lestat on Sat Jan 24, 2015 7:36 pm



She is sipping whiskey on the rocks
I spotted her from across the room
up on that stage her body swayed
while singing songs of loss and gloom.

Her cherry painted circus lips
tantalized the microphone
and I slowly thought to myself
I would love to carry her home.

I had seen her through the clouds
of smoke puffing from drunken men.
Gray ghosts floating around this club,
disrupting vision once again.

Then I remembered her raven locks
probably smelled of ashes as well,
and personally I have never been able
to stand that god awful smell.

So while her sequined dress caught the light
I thought it be best to leave her
in her element on that stage,
for mortal men to dream of her...

Now, the notes stream out to form a song
as dulcet tones weave the melody;
so contagious I tap along
drowning myself in its remedy.

The bass line hums at a whisper
as nimble fingers strum the strings;
truly the hands of a master
control the instrument from which it springs.

A trumpeter groans on his horn
his lean figure shrouded in shade;
light catches the brass gleaming like morn,
reflecting the vibrant tone he made.

The drummer nods with his eyes closed
as his sticks keep time to the beat-
during a rest they stay poised,
turning to strike cymbals from his seat.

As the music plays time ebbs by
occasional people taking a swig;
tapping the rhythm out on a thigh
until the end of the gig.

--------------------------

Thank you Victor and Claire, for your hospitality, in your club so fair!

You paint such vivid pictures with your words, mon ami. Smile I could see it in my mind, as I read.
