The Harlem Dancer by Claude McKay applauding youths laughed with young prostitutes
Dancer by Claude McKay
APPLAUDING youths laughed with young prostitutes
watched her perfect
, half-clothed body sway;
Her voice was like
the sound of blended flutes
Blown by black players upon a picnic day.
She sang and danced on gracefully and calm,
The light gauze
hanging loose about her form
To me she seemed a proudly-swaying palm
Grown lovelier for passing through a storm.
her swarthy neck black
, shiny curls
Profusely fell; and,
tossing coins in praise
, and even the girls,
her with their eager
, passionate gaze;
at her falsely-smiling face
I knew her self was not in that strange place.
