Day 16. Cavorting

Cavorting

Long thin arms and legs of an African 
tribesman in full headdress undulate
 in rhythm with the vibrations of primitive
percussion instruments. Bent knees lift
and spring while sharp elbows flap wide.
All manner of awkward yet graceful poses
process through his movement. The stealthy lion,
the big winged buzzard, the slippery
serpent infiltrate his dance. Raw, earth, primal.

This is absolutely fun,  and indeed resembles my awkward flapping😃 one technical flaw, jaguars are South American not African so maybe, tiger. And good grief your up really early or really late.

thegateless.org Come on over and check out my poetry substack y'all;-) Or if your bored, head to the Zazzle store: https://www.zazzle.com/store/gateless. If you buy anything I lose a bet, so consider that before you violate the digital rules.

Thanks DC.  I just used the first animal that popped in my head. But you are right I need an African cat and what is more African than the lion which is the headrests I imagined as I began writing this.
