In the Corner of My Mind There Is a Small Boy Dancing
Because someone once told me I couldn’t,
I will dance,
I want to be here.
Right here, right now.
Aware of our bodies sharing air.
To feel my heart pumping, and my breath gasping,
I want to lose myself.
And dance myself, anew.
For you to see me,
Inside, sometimes it feels like I hold the weight of the whole world.
So, I will keep dancing until I get it all out.
In the Corner of My Mind There Is a Small Boy Dancing is a siting, a situation, and a reinterpretation of my own body finding release through the ecstatic, erotic, ephemeral elation of moving. An attempt to adjust and re-adjust our bodies and our bodily experience through dance.
