The Ballad of Lightning Rod / La Balada de Pararrayos


Heads down
Watching phones
Nodding off
When will the bus arrive?
Unknown
Silence thrives
Until a lonesome cough

A stirring
Catches the collective gaze
Of all potential riders
Off in the evening haze.

Approaching ever closer
A frenzy of movement
Quite often flawed
Comes the dancing machine
Our Lightning Rod

Ears plugged with tunes
Only he perceives
Showing off awesome moves
Only seen to be believed.

Arms spread wide and spinning
Knees bent down
And up again
Grinning
Eyes closed
Rhythmically posed
Feet twirling across the ground
Prancing like a funky chicken.

Toes now tapping
Hearts now pleasant
The bus stop crowd
Sits awed
In the presence
Of a disco god
In the presence of Lightning Rod






Bajen la cabeza
Ver los teléfonos
Cabeceando
¿Cuándo llegará el autobús?
Desconocido
Silencio prospera
Hasta una tos solitaria

Una agitación
Atrapa a la mirada colectiva
De todos los potenciales corredores
En la bruma de la noche.

Se acerca cada vez más cerca
Un frenesí de movimiento
Muy a menudo errónea
Llega la máquina de baile
Nuestro Pararrayos

Oídos tapados con melodías
Sólo percibe
Luciendo impresionantes movimientos
Sólo visto para ser creído.

Brazos abiertos amplios y spinning
Rodillas dobladas hacia abajo
Y otra vez
Sonriendo
Ojos cerrados
Rítmico que plantea
Pies dando vueltas por el suelo
Saltando como un pollo funky.

Ahora tocando los dedos del pie
Corazones ahora agradable
El parada de autobús público
Se sienta asombrados
En la presencia
De un Dios discoteca
En presencia de Pararrayos

Son tan amables! Me alegro de que sientes la energía, estaba tratando de ponerlo en palabras como una canción de discoteca. Incluso jugó música disco mientras escribía. Muchas gracias por tus palabras maravillosas! Muchos mil besos para ti, querida Artista :) xoxo

Erm... Somehow, I imagined you doing all the dance moves but in Walter Mitty's style. That is, all in his imagination though the character I imaged in my mind is you. Hahaha... It's a compliment.

Yes, completely unintentional but indeed, this is a version of me. I often do dance moves in stores as I wait for lady friend shop if the tune is right. I am lighting Sham :) Compliment accepted!
