The body moved in a certain pattern
Arching, bending, twisting and turning
The arms and legs swung easily to and fro
Like a disjointed attachment from a toy skeleton….
The body moved swiftly, slowly and surely
Transforming at angles that at first seemed impossible…
The being was without form and bone as it performed unashamed magic,
Right before millions of prying eyes
It changed face and form.
Witchcraft! was the first to arrive on the scene of reactions
Later Horrendous and Unbelievable showed up
It wasn’t worthy of emulation, Not like that.
And then a certain entity, devoid of subjective societal limitations
Broke forth strong, in mind and heart
Strong willed and confident,
He would not be bent or bribed.
Standing in the clear,
He declared the Art Beautiful!
And he proceeded to represent it in a frame, Everyone couldn’t resist …
This Poem seems to be addressing the beauty of dancing. I’m a lover of Art. All the kinds of Art. However, this piece seems to be covering different Artistry, if you do a closer reading,(a deconstructive criticism). You will find that the poem seems to be describing the power of an objective critic, the influence of the television and the intimate art of photography. What can you see in the poem?
