Eruption


Rhythm beating, feet stamping, lights flickering, people shouting
The music beats heavily, it vibrates within the soul, the steam rises from the dance floor, the lights red, blue, pink and flickering silver capture the dancers

‘BLACK OUT’
Shouts, screams, gasps at the power failure, the emotions change but not the peak
The people argue, fuss, fight and bite as the eruption of the agony takes place.

my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
