Ritual of Dance

from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 2 by Nhojj



As a child I would dance about the house when no one was watching. Then I grew up and lost the feeling. Thankful I’ve found my inner child again...


I dance at night
In a basement 
Music pounding 
Soca vibrations sounding 
Sweet to the taste
Sweets provoke my waist
Sweat drips down
Body strips down
Towels wait behind the door
Cause I aim to leave it 
All on this makeshift dance floor

After midnight 
In the darkness  
It’s only me
And the drums
And the bass
And the horns
And the keys
Chords and chorus
Rhymes created for us 
And that church organ 
Jamming in the background 

This House hypnotizes me
This Reggae symphony 
Baptizes me in the river 
In the track
In the groove
In the pocket
Socket to me now 
Pause cause 
I need to breathe...

Eyes closed
Loop me...
Chest exposed 
Sample me...
Arms flailing
Remix me...
Muscles wailing
Remake me...
Feet stomping
Rewind me...
Hips gyrating 
Replay me...
Speakers thumping
Over and over and over again...
Mouth open
Loop me...
Lips smiling
Sample me...
Heartbeat racing 
Faster and faster 

Gods of Funk
Voices chanting rhythms 
Speaking in tongues
Lyrical phenomenons 
Spirit of Shango 
Lightning and thunder 
Afro beat beneath my feet
Turn the dial left 4
Higher bandwidths 
Higher frequencies 
Higher planes

Villages of ancestral domains 
Calling forth the rains
Come forth
Come now 
Fall down &
Water this parched earth
