Lizard Dance

In the serene moonlit night
a chant reverberates
in front trudges a nude trepid girl
behind old women with crackled voices
all leading to the waterfall

the cacophony filters
down the gaping holes of the waterfall
silently weeping for wisps of stolen youth
of a sweet sixteen girl

Mistress granny hurtles like a contraption
then jerks at the waterfall
shrieks like woman possessed
to reveal a glinting knife

only the waterfall groans
the girl, the women and Mistress granny

without cue
Mistress granny ducks before the girl
a lizard dances wildly
on a pool of blood coursing into the

soon the groan of the waterfall is drowned
by wild frenzy
