your skeletal hips
snap like the fingers
of beatnik poets
in the grungy clubs
i like to dream of.

your skeletal hips
sway like the oceans
of distant azules
in the local shores
i like to sing of.

your skeletal hips
shake like the music
of blaring speakers
in the sleazy joints
i like to think of.

your skeletal hips
sway like the breezes
of summer daydreams
in the immense parks
i like to speak of.

your skeletal hips
slide like the serpents
of rocky mountains
in the rural states
i like to write of.

Oh, and the typo in the title needs addressing. But I think you know that.

The imagery is gorgeous, and the rhythm is just as amazing as the music you describe. However, the ending seems lacking--it's not exactly a conclusion.
