The Dancer

You
want to be danced
through me.

You
want to release into the trance
of tall gods and goddesses
lavishing in the air
moving with buoyancy.

It is you
who wants to dance through me
write through me
make love through me.

Countless times
I stopped you
laid forth other plans
but your vibrancy finds its way
through the cracks and crevices
of my shield
and thank God
I cannot seal it all

for without you
I'd be hopeless.
