Too Many Dancers

Artifax, Vol. 2.2 (1973)

Sheldon White

Twisted faces and the other
ugly sights of love
An old man's arms are weak
A kiss is not worth much
a crooked joining of our mouths
and bliss is short
so little to remember

The piano and the clarinet
conspired a sort of rhythm
but there were too many dancers
and rum and Coca Colas
and rosebuds on your shoulder
and suddenly we quarreled
nothing more than that
