Whatever Happened To The Slow Dance?

Poem By Brian (Yaotzu) Bungcayao

Whatever happened to the slow dance
Two souls weaving to the music
Bodies clinched to a slow jam
Mam, may I have this dance
Hands calling forth
Stepping on to the dance floor
Nerves running its course.
And of course
The DJ got the perfect song for the step
The left and right with just a little turn and a dip
Hands on her hip
head on my shoulder
Felling benign.
The dance lasting forever
In a twinkle of an eye.
But I, probably never ever see it again
Skipped the senior prom
Probably wont have my own wedding
Club setting to the image of the freaky galore
But I, kinda miss the songs when Motown soared
Smokey Robinson down the line to Boys II Men
Down on hand and knees to feel that moment again

The Bed Of A Modern Man

Where has the quiet gone?
Aching for the mouths of bickering beast to swallow their own tongs.
Envisioning the flames of crashing cars from drivers with no respect to the human foot.

Losers Never Win

Losers never win,
dim lit existence
showing up at heavens door
banging daily yelling 'let me in',

Lay With You

As I lay here
Will you lay with me.
Nonsexual embracing of shadowed walls
blocking out the light of day unappreciated

Love Letter 2003

I tried to write a poem for you tonight
To encapsulate the feelings of joy
Elevated to heavens eyes
Gazing into a windowsill

Unhappy Ending

They called her china doll
I called her for anther round

Her eyes rolled to the cat calls
