You and I
have dancer physiques,
but not their intelligence.
They understand
that which is beyond us,
flummoxing gravity away from
their dragonfly frames, leaving
only the thin skin of
their toes
tethered to the ground.

I have little cause
to desire escape.
But once you opened the
refrigerator door, I could not
resist the knowledge of
cold. When you lifted the
ceiling, I had nowhere
to hide from the sun.
And when you introduced
the concept of height, how
could I but dream
of falling.
you are my inspiration.

As a dancer and one who has been among dancers, I find these lines exceptionally beautiful and true.
