Contain the heat,

the movement, 

the sound.

Toss fingers wide,

and dip

chin,

blades..shoulders..elbows..palms

into a spin…

Pound

thoughts

down,

down from helter-skelter mind

through music-hugging hips, 

willing knees, flexed calves, splayed toes,

beyond, even, supporting ground-

move ’em out

until sweat beads, glass fogs

and your heart and smile rise.

Once a giggle finds voice,

throw open the windows-

mimic your every pore-

invite the wind,

and

slow

the swirl

into a sway

into a collapsed puddle of joy

with eyes fixed

on boundless

sky
