Peacock dance

  Peacocks won't dance
for nothing.
They would wait
for rains
and peahens
who would trail them
having dropped
their envy
and sexist pretence.

They would open
their plumes wide
in a charming fan,
take a swirl or two -
the drizzle
giving an impetus
to their steps
and rhythmic stance.

Not caring for
effeminate abandon,
they would tilt
their long blue necks,
bob their heads a bit,
showing off
delicately feathered crowns.
They would then
squeal through
the winds -
each one of them
saying 'Kao, Kao,
I am here, come to me'
in rousing cadence.
