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
infinitesimals
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
        (open)circle
note to note
        a ka-kosmos
 
a river-ocean studio dance
knowing tiny forever
long too short
with no moves
 
again
