HARLEM DANCER .......

Applauding youths laugh with young  prostitutes
And watched her perfect , half -  clothed body sway
Her voice like the sound of blended flutes
Blown by black players on a picnic day

She sang and danced  on gracefully  and calm
The light gauze hanging loose about her form
To me she seemed a a proudly swaying palm
Grown lovelier from passing through a storm

upon her swarthy neck black shiny curls
Luxuriant fell ; and tossing coins in praise
The wine-flushed , bold eye boys , and even girls
Devoured her shape with eager , passionate gaze.

But looking at her falsely - smiling face
I knew herself was not in that strange place.

........
........  Just a little poetry today from CM.
I like to share. I like this one.
Be good.

Despite being attractive and admired as a sex worker, Mr. McKay saw her dignity. The pressures of life has forced her into the profession and she doesn't want to be there. She has compartmentalized her life to survive. Sure she is sexualized but she is not sexual, just pretending to be so that she could make ends meet. You understand that don't you?

Re: HARLEM DANCER .......

Yes I did. Sorta obvious , but  there with you.
BUT notice  , I separated the last 2 lines. You call it Dignity , I saw strength of the human spirit. (early 1900s not a great time )
Reminded me of his famous one - 'that one  people shouts about'
That's why I broke up the poem .  The early part of the poem  spoke of something else. lo
.............
Last year , could be earlier  this year  I was on the main street of the island.
THIS 25-30 year old woman walked down the sidewalk . She was dressed like McKay described " a Rihanna in a light gauze".
When she passed , everyone , Stopped , looking back at her.
Some exclaimed !
Lord !
" She was aware "  the  Zezebel .lo.

........ So I am learning ... McKay lusted after sexy and sensuous women . Full stop. lol
Is that so ? You are the expert . "I am just guessing from his poem . .
Bad Mckay.

Why not bro? Is my language too blatant and coarse?  I am aware that I am offending because that is my aim.
