She is immersed in a world of glitter glances
Strobe-lights and mirror-ball dances
Singin' on her way to the chruch desanctified
Shaking off inhibitions that keep her crucified

The gospel from the DJ booth spins
She dances in glitter with her hip friends
Looking for her lovers in private clubs
Over the speakers that pump Amber dubs

It's not just one dimensional dancing
When the men are all tripping from drug enhancing
She spots a mirror with her reflection
Disco Lady is an insurection

She's out on the town spinning in song
With disco melodies swanking along
Her light on the floor is caliente galore
As she shimmies like Chi-Chi the whore

Lights trip on fantasy video shoots
Disco Lady is rockin' her thigh-boots
She's vixen, she's a saint
She's somebody you ain't

Disco Lady is a Shining Superstar
Your patheic attempt falls short by far

Disco Lady sing out your FEVER
Heat up the scene cause I'm a believer

Disco Lady has got me trippin' balls
I have to take a breather, over against the walls
She spins her magic like the vinyl disks
And the nostalgia for her glitter will always exist

Disco Lady's magic glitter dust
Will fade away like metal to rust
The high will crash as I leave the scene
And I'll wonder if it was all a dream

Thanks poesandpoetry and RightingIt, I am so glad that the two of you enjoyed this piece. I thought it was very fun and I did write it with a rythmn and I am glad you two caught it. Yes, I said "Trippin' Balls" it's a favorite phrase of mine, but I am sure you knew exactly what I mean p&p.
Gotta love our Disco ladies! The 'church desanctified' that I refer to is the old Limelight in New York, now called Avalon. it was originally a HUGE church that was turned into a club back in the 80's. This is also where James St. James was a club promoter. James St. James is the guy who's friend was a drug dealer and had gotten killed in a really brutal way (and then cut into pieces with a turkey trimmer. It's all in a book by James called "Disco-bloodbath" (check it's quite good) and now Mccauly Culken is playing James St. James in a new indie movie about it. Anyway, there is a little history in the poem for ya.
thanks again!
