Come see the most wonderful show of them all. The best dancers of the world are in it. You'll be impressed.

Bullet Show

Such a lovely scene --
Thousands of dancers swaying through the air.
In a flawless choreography, tiny flairs.
Coordination, concentration; perfection.
Increasingly fast movements, not anyone can see.
Full of beauty, yet for some, hard to perceive.

For the final act,
the dancers let out a warm red splash.
Bright, warm, red -- firework.
Followed by a stunning, loud cry.
As they move away,
back and forth. Back, forth;
and then back again.
A lively melody,
cries of pain, in vain.
The air becomes tangible,
filled with loud sounds, density.
-- A thrilling intensity.

Then, after a while;
the dancers slow,
The cries become soft;
everything comes to a stop.

But the show goes on.

( and on
and ... on.)
