Juke Baby by Ron Porter

juke baby,? ?juke?!

head thrown back
sway mama,? ?sway
eyes closed
parted lips
shuffle and slide
shake yo hips
in gyrations rhythmic
vestigial remnants
of another dance
another land
lush? ?and green
and fertile and wild
where women did
shimmy and shake
about the fire
in rhythmic gyration
to welcome 
the hunting men
home once more

Juke baby,? ?juke?!
