School Dance

The gym was decorated:
crepe draped and glittery.
Disquietude was partner
as I stood against the wall,
misrepresented hunger gnawing at my soul
and a misunderstood thirst.
The electric strumming died,
so the vehemence of a heart-throbbing 
perpetual drum solo 
and snare’s 
shimmering effervescence
could ripple, rumble and shoot 
as lightning through the air,
no reverence for my ears,
nor veneration for years.
Then he 
stepped into the emptiness 
of the full room,
a late arrival, early, 
I heard my heart’s solo drumming
on my ribs resonating 
until my misconstrued hunger and thirst turned keen 
and translated 
to amorousness. 
My teen heart flamed. 
Fervidness was defined.
And all music forever changed
its tune.
