PICK A PARTNER

Stilling the air charged by previous dancers
Inhaling and lifting, look about, search for someone to dance with,

Couples waiting to meet:
The old familiar: Will I be chosen?

Who will be my partner?
Will I find a mate?
Can we move together?
Will you share my space?

Grouping, hoping
See me
Hold me
Love me
I'm beautiful
O look, feel, sense
How it is we move together.

This says it all:
What our bodies do together.
Don't leave.

O let's have been connected before forever.
Let's not ever not touch.

--Elizabeth Rose Rasumny Herbert
