"Si dan a tú papel alineado, escribas el otro camino."
"If they give you lined paper, write the other way"
-Juan Ramon Jiminez

Put one hundred of my kind

on a field one summer night

watch us light it up like stars.

A tingling charge fills the air

a whole new

renewable energy source

eternal,free, dangerous,

we glow if you're watching closely.

It starts with the music.

It always starts with the music.

A pulse, the bass, the heartbeat

makes us stretch for something

we can't see, draw closer to

feel the heat in the crowd.

The scent of fire, and recklessness

We're all delicately balanced,

hovering on the balls of our feet,




When we dance, it's a high,

we can hear nothing

but the music

feel nothing

but the power and joy of living

see nothing

save each other

and the stars.

When the dawn opens the heavens

all we can do is smile,

drained and radiant.

Yeah, we're crazy,

we're geniuses but

the dumbest things this

side of the moon,

We're Earth's greatest resource

We will live forever.

I can't say I completely understood it, though the title makes the meaning clearly.....nonetheless, it's a beautiful poem, I just wish the spacing wasn't so ...gappy? :P I'd give this a 4/5 (:
