seventies

born in the nineties
attached to anything antique
watching a music video of the 70s
a disco in Cape Town
dazzling streets, hypnotizing sounds

of artists, young, gifted, and black
musicians with incredible knack
for releasing subtly lustful tracks
tracks on weed
for dancers on heat

vanity
insanity
of the seventies
fantasies of
a nineties born
