No Lights, No Lycra

This came out of conversations at The Angry Pigeons.  No Lights No Lycra is a world wide movement (started in Fitzroy). They are clubs for dancing without all the impedimenta usually associated with public dance venues.  Someone presumably still has to clean up afterwards.

No Lights, No Lycra.
No visceral sub-sonics.
Just the drift of dust
through lines of light
penciled by nail holes
in the tin roof.

No Lights, No Lycra.
Circling slowly in 
sun-punctuated gloom,
humming 'Some enchanted evening',
with thongs flapping softly.
Dancing with the mop,
ignoring the steaming bucket - 
no lights, no lycra
on the morning after the night before.
