The Dancing

All this choreographed
falling, a series
of dives

in search of pattern
by way of seeking
restless

fluttering seams
pirouette
a turn

the motion is set
silhouette
in front

behind the kick
step lightly
against

your partner, alone
in parts attended
by tempo

or this: you’re so clumsy
if you threw
yourself

to the ground, I’m sure
you’d miss
at least.
