DOMINO DANCING


Come dance with me
and we shall be
like dominoes
connecting the dots
to make a pretty picture

No ordinary gal
a femme fatale
raising eyebrows
across the west
(get here...we'll do the rest)
you'll be my Charlotte Gainsbourg
I'll be your Lars Von Trier
directing you to new heights
of abasement
and though you're not Victoria
you'll be my dirty little secret
and sign my binding resolution
with you hands behind your back

I know we can get it started
but can we keep it going
no matter which way
the wind is blowing
imagination is the key
you may have a better one than me
of this we shall see
and come that day
you dance with me
we'll do it vertically
and horizontally
scoring
when we connect
end to end
(hey, that's how the game is played)

So tumble for me
and I'll tumble for you
as dominoes
forever falling
toppling
into one another
merging
and
melting
black and white
dissolving 
into fifty shades of grey

  6. This is such an effective metaphor, well-played. Loved the ending with the black and white melting into 50 shades of gray. And, oops, I am Victoria. :0)

  8. Excellent ending - loved the 50 shades of gray. The metaphor comes out really well and in a sensual manner if I must say so!

  13. The falling dominoes have a certain feel for it. It creates excitement with movements and you've brought it out very well, Tim!

  16. Quite a sensuous frolic through pop and other culture, Timo--I love the images and liveliness here. Love is a fantasy as well as the famous battlefield, and the language is buoyant and alive as the dance it describes.
