in the street.

Standard

on the night before

the Barcelona – Napoli soccer match

takes place in the stadium

the streets close to cars

and open 

only to people

who celebrate  

with food and drinks

and especially music

 as martha reeves

belts it out

under the stars

for the happy crowd. 

 

‘i will always dance in the street.’

 collective joy in graffiti alley 

ann arbor, mi – summer 2018

“the urge to transform one’s appearance, to dance outdoors, 

to mock the powerful and embrace perfect strangers is not easy to suppress.”

 -Barbara Ehrenreich, Dancing in the Streets: A History of Collective Joy

35 years ago ‘flashdance’ was released

and it emerged again recently

in honor of international dance day

 i loved this movie

 had the shoes, the ripped up sweatshirt, the perm

though my dancing style

was a bit different  

from this welder by day/dancer by night

and i didn’t live in a cool loft

or have an eccentric dog

or ride my bike to work

or look at all alike

but other than that

we were like sisters.

Take your passion and make it happen! #InternationalDanceDay

“let us read and let us dance –

two amusements that will never do any harm to the world. “
