Roller Disco


Flashing, lightning, calling,

Air and feet

Laugh till we’re weak,

Panting, pulsating, feeling,

Hypnotized minutes

Rage and pass

Violet blue

Colours flash

Climbing, devouring, turning,

Electric tide

Jump and stamp


Smiling, shining, something,

Nothing like that

Had been once

Veering and wheeling

Neon storm

A miracle.

    I enjoyed the images you convyed as well as the light tone of your poem, Alan! All the more so as I imagine I’d feel very awkard at a roller disco.

    Literally cracking with electricity! Lightning indeed!

  7. I like your thought on a different kind of lightning

  8. A terrific prompt, Alan, and I like the direction you chose to fulfill it; not succumbing to the obvious, as I did, lightning bug that I am. Reading this I kept being blinded by the spinning disco ball.

    Fun prompt Alan and I like the way you’ve applied it here. I wonder if they still use those disco balls — I well remember dancing with them flashing in my younger days.

    So much fun. Reminds me when my kids dragged me rollerskating once. OMG.

  11. Mary says:

    I remember in my high school years I used to go to such a roller rink. What fun that was! I like the way you have used lightning here in such a creative and unique way.
