Burlesque

 

 

a literary masters creation from the heart

the creation, caricaturing on the wheel of time

traditionally, a chorus of solo wind dancers swirling

 

in the dance of parodies of colorings

these pastiches of serious dramatic classical work

with feathery fans that reveal then uncover

 

mundane greens now adorn and join

in vivid oranges, dark reds and browns

in the season of the tiny dancer

 

in branched ridicule or mockery

the theater comes alive, an art form

of Performers combining movements

 

in the most explosive aspects of costumery dance

it is a most alluring and pleasuring strip-tease

with a soft comedic interlude to a coming ending

 

as the coloring relieves the historical tensions

like nineteenth-century vaudeville, in a play

that is revealed, then left to bare branch

 

it's the "burla," to joke or ridicule of the coming winter...
