POETIC DISCO

DISCO BALL BY FLAVIA MASSON

DISCO BALL

Let’s dance on broken mirrors

In search of the invisible

Moving to phosphorescent sound

In a slow motion confetti collision

From a traveling globe

Reflecting flames of glass

Illuminated Illusions

Flashes of movement from radiant spirits

Through the spinning optical twilight

The night is endlessly bright.
