It’s great to see a national artist

Gain fame abroad,

Perform with many a local artist,

At home & abroad




The Festival

Thirty years ago, today’s heat would be called intense

Multitudes of tourists, vehicles, wasps

Discomfort that clasps

Leaving the city center was a relief, in a sense

Even when a performance did speak to the sense




I loved every bit

Of today’s performance

A proper space makes sound dance

Even if flaws are hit
