Empathetic movement


Move for me

So I can remember what it feels like

To be lighter than air and so___ 

Very sure of limb

Move for me

In ways my body remembers as if

It were today

When you hold gravity to task

I am fearless once more 

&  Free 

Resist! These universal laws

As ever long you can

Make! Magic! Happen!

Move for me


Like a bird with gyroscopic tic

I was a bird once

Unbeknownst to me

When you Move for me

My empathy kicks in

Oh joy!

Oh Rapture!

Here we go again!
