    You people say there is no dancing
    allowed here. As if we can be stopped.

    As if you yourselves would spin the Earth
    in one direction and would stop our feet

    from shifting, shuffling, double-stepping
    in the other. Thrust against a funnel cloud

    we spiral outward - nothing stops our falling
    away. As if you can ignite and yet contain

    a spark. As if we will be held. It's what we do
    instead of catching fire. The heavy strand

    between you and us stretches to a thread -
    taut and precious. You yourselves have shaken

    dust from a dirty rug. Rocked the water.
    Don't believe you can anchor our bumping

    bobbing bodies treading the surface.
    This is what we do instead of drowning.

    You people beat the drum, you pipe the tune.
    We can only dance, hands outstretched.

    A common thread our swanky prance
    Obdurate circles while we dance
    Harmonious we'd make romance
    And for each other we'd enhance
    With eloquent and wanton stance
    While willingly we take the chance
    To reach across unknown expanse
    And though akimbo not askance
    We flaunt unfettered by durance
    While at each other we would glance
    As if enraptured by a trance

    Inspirational stuff you, thanks. We needed that.

      those subtle little protein threads
    whirling, dancing in my head
    refuse to heed, these restless feet
    are youth-infused with fiery heat...

      Hi Annie I take this to be written from the perspective of the DNA itself (of course I could be wrong on that) In this day and age of genetic manipulation and scary modifications it's an interesting perspective. Life is a dance, and DNA certainly reacts to the 'music' we indulge in but has it's own way in the end.
    cheers, Chris
