I went to the ballet, but
this was no polite plié,
refined pirouette,
genteel sashay performance.

I think I know what they were trying to say with their
Bend, groove, rock,
Punch, jerk, kick.

Life is too short to waste a precious minute.

Hurl, freeze, arch.
Seek beauty, connection.

Tangle, lock.
Accept sorrow.

Release. Release. Release.
But do not let it turn into despair.
