Alternative discipline

For some the dark
means simply time to play;
no dread, but opportunity
for light and color
to glow more fiercely
in the absence of the sun;
a time for festivities,
and rejoicing;
to dance and drink and laugh
and dance again.
Release those stifling fears:
string up the lights
break out your guitars
throw on your gypsy clothes
and kohl your eyes.
Kick up your skirts and toss your hair:
the night has just begun.
