Sudden Little Drops has been recently resurrected so I could talk about music! Check out the new Albums of 2011 post below, and hopefully there will be more new content coming soon.

The Dancer

After dark, in the half light of street lights
I saw, huddled round in the midst of the dark night’s
Melancholy, those who were caught in his haze,
Who clutching bags and coats, took a moment to gaze

At the dancer. I joined them, sunk into the crowd
To witness his movements, this moment allowed
To spark in the depths of a cold night’s gloom,
With one arm below and one arm in bloom.

And tracing the line of his arm’s slow path,
Like the wing-like trail of a woman’s scarf,
As though leaving a snail’s trail of light,
I forgot about the passing night.
