Art Eddy… This Dance


This Dance

so long here and now
beginning a waltz
perhaps to foxtrot
around a rumba
front to front
Axum Indian Sea
back to back
when legs bachata an ocean
salsa a sly river
shoulder side to side
fingertips, sides, knuckles
fists, elbows kiss keys
downshifted thighs up
continental divides
–so here thought, like a bird flies back
        if right–
rocky green and ocean blue
leg leg                        measure globe
compass metronome
mini-huge studio
sing improbable colors
salseo, ando six rivers
for this dance
james garcia mohamed brown
twists turns, against themselves
to know no moves
forever (in)finite
note to note
        a ka-kosmos
a river-ocean studio dance
knowing tiny forever
long too short
with no moves
