This New World

By Chrispy

I’ve never seen anyone mesmerized by me before… it was a little weird.

I raised my hand, and as soon as it moved, that very microsecond, his head lifted and his eyes locked. Like a cat with a proposed new toy.

Like a dog with anything even slightly resembling a ball.

When I spoke, I could see his ears perk up and his attention completely ripped free of anything else.

Velcro sound optional

The owner of the bar seemed to like me, to say the least. And side note, he wasn’t gay, his wife was hot.

He said, in his clipped Chinese accented English, “You dance.”

I didn’t know him yet, so I said,” What?”

“You dance belly good, you dance, they dance.” His skinny arm waved across his bar crowd.

He touched my arm, and pulled away, total respect in every moment.

“you dance, you get hot, you get hot, you drink.” He looked deeply into my eyes like he wanted to make sure I was really paying attention. Then he winked.

“Last night,” he said, his voice lower but somehow more intense, “Last night you dance.”

“You dance, you get hot, they dance too, they dance because of you.” He points a conspirational digit in my direction.

“They get hot,” another wink, “they drink, they drink because of you.” Another finger point.

“last night I made 300 dollars more than I ever have on Thursday, today is Friday, you dance.”

The casual way he gestured towards the dance floor was almost a dare.

“You dance, and I pay, you not pay anymore tonight, just you though.” The last part was a whisper.

I had to think about his one, on the one hand, FREE BEER ALL NIGHT!!! On the other hand, prostitution of your dance moves. Hmmmmmm.

Free beer, no contest.

Dude, I was going to dance anyways.

Oh, one more thing, I’m 50 years old at this point and I have danced my darling, a fucking lot.

 Mostly alone.

I would just like to take this moment and give thanks to a frenemy of mine,

The bugwave girl… in your face darlin'The end
