i suggest
you click the myspace
link
to feel the raging,full,on
effect
of Parlovr
in your living
breathing
space

your heart
place

from the beginning,

there was dancing

living breathing
heart space

in the Lo place

and so,
why waste
time, (i take my
Pen to the Paper)
i moved
(my heart’s pen and scribbled)
gapless to be sure
(this is Heaven!)
at the very front
i’m moving
(they’re writhing)
away in time
to
(bent over, hair,bangs,like,veils)
the beats and ferocious
commitment
(whirling and swirling)
to the music
(popping up and down
like pistons)
geared and oiled up
we’re bouncing
pogo,ing

ferocious engines
roaring
revving
smoking keyboards
drive,throbbing,drums
flying piston
wire
chords

we’re dancing,

we’re
dancing!

i’m leaping from
the tallest
thickest
cloud

and landing
on the dance
floor
only to soar
once more
rocket for
that eternity
cloud!

i’m in my falling
place
sweet abyss
this thrilling
Perfect Kiss
(New Order)

All the World is All
it’s about dancing
celebrating
this is life
not a slow burning
death
to a never,ending,
Hiccup

Parlovr?
Parlour?

“can you answer a question,”
she asks,
as the set list is scribbled
Pen to the Paper
in my journal

it’s about their name

is it,
Par,Lover?
or
Par,lore

“how do you say it?”

“either or,
it’s okay with us.”

someone in the band
thanks me
after the set
for dancing

how could i not?

you’re giving
every,
thing
you have
for us
why stand
why excuse
our lives
on standing?
merely
head,bobbing
queerly
you know The Stance
“the cool guy”
wasting that throbbing
tempo?
and tap,
ping feets
giggling toes
robbing a time
to be dancing children
again

to be uncool again

you know that feeling
don’t you?
or have you forgotten
(youngsters)
fearfully
of looking like
me
courageously and
uncool
and holy f#ck
dancing!

i’m dancing!

merci,

Louis Jackson

All the World Is All

40 minutes
just enough
to leave me
huffing and
puffing and
dripping stream
s of sweat

that’s it,
passion
power
playing like kids
in front of mirrors
in their bedrooms
and vocals
that hook and dig into
your spine
and make you
feel
their
soul music

it’s all about soul

Parlovr
has soul

now,
youngsters,
find the courage
to be uncool
again,
and
dance it,

courageously!
