Stomp

Flamenco

Recoloured Version: /The Flamenco Dancer/: Leopold Schmutzler

Stirring wind of wing:
splitting rock underhoof,
spurring song from stream:
romp in the rill,
stomp on the foothill
of Helicon.

Heavy the footfall
of flamenco
fandango,
skunk bluff-scuffing
and rabbit thumping:
stanzaic.

Steam of snort fogs the short
hoofstamp and sand dragging,
the jogging cloggers—
percussive souls folkloric.
Toe-tapping, heel-slapping
meter meteoric.
