Dancers, Connor Sansby (2017)

They only use you for the practice.
Kabuki shadow puppet love
washed down with peroxidal blondes.

I knew them once,
when this was honest,
before the moves became a stage play.
They waltzed,
touching tango steps on the street
by the bin where folks stub out their cigarettes
and try to avoid breaking their fingers

I tell them they make my head spin
but they tell me it’s the whisky,
and they dance down the street
To the next ballet bar

Inspiration

I took part in a collaborative exhibition with local artists & writers from across Kent, known as An Assemblage of Judicious Heretics.

As a participating artist I was given an anonymous poem to illustrate in my chosen medium.

It was only when the exhibition opened in Oct 2017 at Rochester Community Hub, did we find out who wrote the accompanying poetry and those who completed the artwork (as that too remained anonymous).

I have taken part in the Assemblance of Judicious Heretics three times now and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of creating art to accompany a piece of beautiful creative writing
