1 hop..Two hops..Three
A Rhumba groove…. A beat…Viva la mi!
A twist of my thigh, and a hard jiggle of flesh..
My heel points and ankle rises
Right leg stretched high…
My neck reaches behind me
Back bent and breast arched
Sweat glitters on my exposed shoulders
Up I bounce…Shimmy Shimmy..Cha Cha Cha..
Click back right..Click back left…. Up right..Up left
Bend forward now RISE-
(Smile)..Flounce your hair.. Shimmy Shimmy..Cha Cha Cha..
I grab and take it..
A final bow..and I leave the stage
damp and scorched
…….breathless and rich.
