Dancing Man, Sydney, Australia August 15, 1945


The Dancing Man is the name given to the man who was filmed dancing on the street in Sydney, Australia, after the end of World War II.

Remember anyone
looking happy — him happy.

The steps, his magic
in his dance, his dazzling yes.

Confetti already
to be push groomed from the street.

Soldiers, sailors, and
their gals, shocked to se him dance.

Those other people
had ben through so much killing.

Today we don’t have
war, or violence. In spring
we bury our dead
with holes in the head. We start
over in summer — finding each other.
