Singles Bars

The music's blaring out
while bodies sway
and thump around
to the beat
loudly trumpeted through
loudspeakers
making the walls bounce
in time
to each crescendo
people softly visible
through the smokey haze
searching... always searching
for new or old contacts
a possible bed partner
for later
and the booze drowns
and the music plays
the smoke doesn't rise
but the body temperatures do
banging, clanging,
chumping, throbbing
dancers keep weaving
bobbing to the music
pretending intimacy
they wish they had
singles bars
are such lonely
places
