Night Flamboyance

Dancers perform on their way to attend a rally with former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva to support president Dilma Rousseff in the historic neighbourhood of Lapa, Rio de Janeiro

The night  vibrates

with the frenzied steps

of dancers

as they strut and step

in unison,


The street echoes

their salsa,

the darkness is illuminated

with the energy of the swing

of their skirts and hips


Vibrant fabric swirls,

skin sheened with sweat

glistens under street lights


Life beat pulsates

in flamboyance
