We dance with our souls
in the deepening shadows.
Pirouetting in gray places.
Gingerly entering, uncertainly
on preordained social stages —
surrounded by expectant faces.
Spinning around
with disembodied dreams,
in fragile unsynchronized themes.
Stepping into life
with toes pointed,
heels drawn like knives.
Perhaps in a poised attempt
to be indifferently different?
Trying to rework everything
we supposedly know.
Choreographing shades
into familiar beats
of accepted mortality,
and our own versions
of cathartic reality.
