A mid-February lift


If I Were

There are lots of ways to dance and
to spin, sometimes it just starts my
feet first and then my entire body, I am
spinning no one can see it but it is
happening. I am so glad to be alive,
I am so glad to be loving and loved.
Even if I were close to the finish,
even if I were at my final breath, I
would be here to take a stand, bereft
of such astonishments, but for them.

If I were a Sufi, I would be
one of the spinning kind.
