God is a DJ

19 Oct

the music begins and I look around
I already kicked off my worry with my shoes
I already left my self-consciousness at the door
I am assuming it gave up and walked away
along with my pride and fear
cause no one here is aware
of their own inadequacy
it doesn’t exist
this isn’t a competition
this is a celebration
no one is trying to get with anyone
everyone is already together
no one is going to go home lonely
we are already home
the music ebbs and flows
jungle beats and mountaintop flutes
jazzy, then epic rock
simple guitar
carrying into the fullest orchestra
we dance
as one humankind
all shades of black, brown, white whirl into one
with the synchronization of professionals
the silliness of children
the familiarity of a couple on their fiftieth anniversary
the lyrics tell our stories
and our lips move
our voices strong
singing with the melody
It becomes singular: our story
sworn enemies grab hands
formal cripples swinging round
sons lifting up with strong arms
daughters twirling
the music shifts
we turn with it
all bodies fluid in this
river of joy
the music fades
in unison we shout:

ONE MORE SONG!
