origins of dance

lying there in rapture, dreaming so deep among all our worlds and
in which as is natural, bodies interpenetrate and the true nature
of dance is revealed

for which reason most dancers are hypocrites
keeping themselves to themselves and their limbs to their limbs
keeping their mouths to their mouths and their hands to their hands

ignoring the content of dance, that is the holes of the body
and their expulsions and retentions, their immersions and penetrations

distributions among their theatricalities
i can tell all of this from the depths of sleep
you can hear all of this from the depths of your sleep

when your holes open to my own
where the dance originates
when the dance begins
