and so softly jingling jangling (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

and so softly jingling jangling

dancing is always a trancing entrancing
daringly chancing perchancings
’round ‘n’round in a somewhere else-ing
beholding here in your flattening bosom
singular behestings of plundering sighs
and opiating sang-songing denyings
marching to the falling of loose change
wandering in the meandering of wondering
abiding on in the hold of just abiding on
dancing is always a trancing entrancing
daringly chancing perchancings
’round ‘n’round in a somewhere else-ing
you’re wanting but too scared of giving-up
what it aint that you’re try’n to be doing
you’re slowly deciding on being no more but
how you know’n when there’s be’n no more
and where will you be go’n by pass’n on out
through whatever door on to some body else
you here running away from being before
dancing is always a trancing entrancing
daringly chancing perchancings
’round ‘n’round in a somewhere else-ing
your stoically warming and enclosing eyes
and laughing saddening beguiling smile
are conjuring up enthralling caressings
of make believe arms spin’n around too
making like this is all there is to do
is this what it is you’re wanting to be
all we’re ever going to be seeing as you
dancing is always a trancing entrancing
daringly chancing perchancings
’round ‘n’round in a somewhere else-ing
