School of Dance


I think I remember
how this dance goes,
but it has been so long
since I heard the music
and felt its rhythm
passing through my limbs.
Slow, fast-fast, slow….
If I stumble,
will you lift me up?
Will you take the lead,
and sweep across the room
with me in your arms?
Move slowly at first,
let me fall in step.
Move slowly,
until our bodies melt together
and we match each other
breath for breath.
Be patient with me,
if I don’t get it right
first time through.
I’m doing this backwards,
wearing high heels.
