purple,green, gold

she joined the rabble rousers
in a street dance of abandon
on a night made of fantasy

purple, green, gold
jesters and skeletons and
dominatrix with a whip

fleur de lis and masked revelers
drunken wet kisses, blonde hair
in disarray, eyes glazed with

desire, to be, to love
to live
dancing on a tabletop

in a room of pulsing light
and gyrating bodies
that validate her

wild and secret nature
for one night, in one place
suspended forever in her psyche
