The Flagship of Anti-Poetry — est. 2010

At ~ Z ~ Nightclub

At ~Z~ Nightclub

All the single ladies hit the dance floor at Z nightclub
Every macho man tries to squeeze in for a rub
Evolutionary psych is at play beneath the black light
Skins bare and courtships flare, beaming neon smiles so bright

Countless different voices clamor for attention
Men and women crave each other's validation
Girls flaunt sensuality; boys try to break the tension
Hips swing and heads swim—with wild anticipation

Loudspeakers deafen while vision is goggled by booze
Arms flail upward as inhibitions are set loose
Mania overtakes when inhibitions become reduced
Society sheds civility for carnality's caboose

DJ priests of Techno spin out another break
Everything is given for those who want to take
One feels like it's a dream although clearly wide awake
Shuffling to the rhythm, happy feet produce a quake

Cameras flash to catch partygoer poses
Fish lips, duck face, tilted necks and turned up noses
Lasers cut through dry ice and vapor doses
Fleeting moments frozen by those who chose this

It all happens at Z nightclub ~ every weekend ~ everywhere
Why pursue more meaning ~ if it's plain and simple there?

This one has a rap or spoken-word feel to it. Bravo!

This starts so well, but then it gets stagnant. You can move farther than from evolutionary psych to carnal lusts beneath the veneer. More image maybe? The rhymes help anchor the meter and I liked the way you start the lines w/ trochees.

Edit it. This one will reward your efforts.
