A Sea Of Shattering Applause - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

rain
under the streetlamp
on the road
a million ballet dancers
in leg over head posture
earning themselves tonight
a sea of shattering applause

    Nice. I think of the kind of clapping sound that heavy rain makes when it hits the ground. Applause, applause. (Report) Reply
