black batman

he wore the fur lined cape 
of the black bat man
into the disco 

the music so loud 
it made a perfect circle
down on the dance floor

he moved through the crowd 
like liquid snow
steam coming off his cheeks

he shook hands 
with the bartender
the black hands of desire

the place would burn to the ground
less than three weeks later
killing most of them

but tonight wasn’t made for that sort of thing
tonight wasn’t made for worrying
about a future that would never arrive

tonight was made for michelob
and benson and hedges
and hand jobs in the black

back part of the club and
whatever else the world

had to throw into our way
