From THE SUGARMAN SONG CYCLE – by Craig San Roque

SCENE 3   NIGHT DANCING

Euronome
in the beginning night was dancing
she was dancing
you feel her in your blood
dancing
who is that coming
dancing
that is my blood
dancing on the water
before I was born
who is that coming
that is the wind
dancing on the water
before I was born
night on the water
snake on the water
dancing
before I was born
what is that coming
shining
on the water
an egg
before I was born
before I was born
my father a snake
my mother dancing
an egg burning on the water
shining and broken
all things dancing
coming out
coming out
my mother dancing
on my own country
