my body says yes!
it becomes clear
shake up what’s inside
its not hard
take nothing personally
you were born
you are fucking beautiful
don’t come to help
without first dancing with us
this is what I know about community:
the community was dancing before you
and will continue to dance when you’re gone
but if you’d like to dance with us,
don’t take it personally
you’re just another body moving
but as we move together
different shapes and motions and expressions
nature is just as interested in death
as it is life
nature is just as interested in stillness
as it is motion
the more I dance,
I know all of this is true
and more than I will ever know
occupy your body, first.
then step into the world with that.
you’re not the same
and neither is the dance
because of you
because of your unique expression
yes, you’re following something bigger
but the choice of how to show up
is. all. you.
so, we need you.
dance with us.
