hands clasped vise tight




hands clasped vise tight,
knees bent, muscles
forward.

an arm entwines with an arm
shoelace style. tugs firm
at the hips while a dance starts

where necks extend, chins
thrust forward; from parted lips
smiles slip ahead;

cutlass and chisel ride--
a glide, a slide,
a hover;

at the very edge of reason
animal instinct
takes over.
