friday night at shambhala

by kirk ramdath

we dance under a dazzling panoply of stars
on a cool august night in the forest
a fairytale annotated by drops of bass
that fall on our heads like rain
until bodies are sweaty from so much sound
and moving like a pulse to the music
even the lights hanging in the trees
are dancing with the leaves
we dance together, you and i
with a thousand bodies throwing down
this is no slow dance
dirty dubstep moves our limbs
not with grace but groove and thrust
the first time i have danced with you —
the first chance i’ve had to see you dance
after not too long
the pumping bass takes second place
to the mesmerising sight of you
dancing like you are the moon
and the music is but an ocean
that follows the movement of your body
across the sky
i offer you water
you drink and say thank you
i say you are welcome
but what i want to tell you
is that the sun has no need to thank the day
nor has the moon a need to thank the night
and tonight you must be a child of the moon
because you shimmer when you dance
and your light rules the night
