dancing girl press, 2010

contra dance after divorce

save me from the earnest young men
with no souls
their possessive wooden hands scraping
the small of my back
with robot passion

give me
undulating hearts in warm flesh
smiles without controlling
whirl of humility and hope, humor
meet me, round and round and hand to hand
til blood
rises to my cheeks

do not

check me with your eager power
