dance with ne
a chain-verse poem
come into my life and take a sip:
sip the flavor of my elegance—
elegance to woo you from the lip,
from the lip, down to the hips that dance.
dance with me awhile and let me see,
see the measure of your pirouette.
pirouette into love’s filigree,
filigree you shall not soon forget.
forget not the scars upon my brow:
brow-to-brow, we contemplate the threats—
threats you know alone, alone i know,
no one half-prepared to face regrets.
face regrets, if they can help you heal;
heal the wounds of others and yourself,
and yourself a worthy cause shall seal,
seal a treasure greater than vain wealth.
