a YouTube-taught breakdancer

at his junior-school dance

clears the crowd

                        like a Jedi

& lets the BPM bounce

                                    his

                                                limbs

 

hitting the sweet-spot

            between exhibitionism & Art

sounds like the crack

            of a post-match bum-slap

but awkward

            like a team-mate

            who farts on contact

 

have you ever watched a magpie

fly full-tilt

            into a glass door

            & then die?

if you havent, search  creativity

in the Urban Dictionary &

            youll see

            the definition is a GIF:

that magpies trajectory.
