    dotsThe Singer dots

    The man, like some great big cat of a lion
    purred and undulated, shook his arms
    flailed his arms
    and squeezed shut his eyes
    tears streaming down his face
    sweat gathering up in his underarms and neck and forehead.
    Occasionally, his shirt would flap down,
    revealing course and dark hair on his chest
    in contrast to his bright red (and rather barren) head.

    At this moment, he kneels on the stage and yells,
    his voice quavering and he looks and sounds like a dog on his last few hours. Steam seems to be rising up from him.

    And I roll my eyes. The lady behind him,
    equally possessed,
    wails on a piano as the song finishes
    and the man looks fresh from an exorcism.

    We (my father and I), shuffle out of the auditorium with the rest.
    "That was ridiculous," I say.
    "That was beautiful," my father says.

      Seeing from two differnt points of view,
    one younger and one wise in the ways of the world. Nice work. I like it.

    I'm going to take my right to poetic license and say this was about two very different views. Two very different worlds, minds, blah blah. I adore how you've described what you saw (through your own eyes)... and wonder what your father could have seen through his.

    I like it.
