DANCE POEMS

 
PINA BAUSCH
“Vollmond”

                        Fossil wedge
clock-arm
                        syntax
            thrum

 scythe cycle
            worm pendulum
                        maladroit
lever
            centrifuge
                                    can’t
            wraith kiss
trunk air noble grower twist

            shadow bug lake
                        old cavern hurler

                                    she

                                    faun legs

            hand gauge
                                    all the people

                                    dove line

            plash




            akimbo

                                    hair flame skein

            crone wing

                                    knob
            flap
tock

wrest screwbird

bound              geist





black                taper

                        scuttle

line rung

            was wrong shadow





lock rain push
Kali


            salt       embrace
            shade   clap

sphinx             harper

                        lamprey

linear
                        flight fright

                        char                 aural
                                    clime
                                    wait

shillelagh rain

                                    water glyph
                                                ponder


ripple glimmer

                        reflexive
                        piston


                                    torment ape


            drop arc


            windmill


            ink hair scuttle

            sufi was the sky

lawn water chiaroscuro


            strobe orb

                        seal
                                    troll

            orange sin

                                    odalisque ruby
            dour

                        weeping
                                    song

            poppy wrath

                        crux churn

            kiss

spider              shadow

            thank hands

                        robot
                        morn

the precarious plight
            of a body
            in the wind.

                        Lever pull

still crux


                        over sun circle


            sun body
                                    jack

plough fluid

            her

was repose

                        bridge cast

moon damp sprite


was a shadow


speech hair


                        wound

                        freeze

                        sob

            storm
shone               was

fur
            body wheel

                        tumble

moon atmosphere

           
            hush slush
            slosh
                        molecule
                                    ritual

            clock
                        speech

            snake



            nebula arc

                                    storm man



            lush spark

            paper-eating



            trembling
                                   
                                    waltz

            burst

                        aorta
            like swimming

debris slop

hurl

spurt rain
            paint dress
blood
            erased

cushion
            framed

            gargoyle pull

was down over

the light
            ibis


            rain

                                    a
                                    s
            script

            spark



            repeat



was      together

            what was


            the doer not his
                        oval


copper shrine
                        sheet

            twinned

            trimmed
                        sylph lost


what was that at
            the rain

mechanism
                        kinetic

            supple
                        beach
            hand

breath
            rising
                                    salt & pepper
                        wave

            flower venom
                        overwhelm

phase
                        meant light

            human
                        further

This poem moves with such buoyancy--very graceful.

Lovely, deceptively lush poem!

And thanks for the turn-of-the-year poem card: 'twas lovely, too!

cheers,
