When Dancers Return

Born fire by night

thick air in crevasses filling

swelling,

bodies up close

faced with desires brought forward once more,

the sweet lust for life brought back to us all.

Movement by breathing

open and oozing

carries off bodies

through heat of the work,

the heat of the foot work,

(humid and thick)

sensing each other and seeing relief.

Moved back into feeling

the im(pulse) of life in spite of it all

returning to grooves in a heart’s open call


driving stiff bodies

in thick and hot air

flaring magnetic, by fire ensnared.
