Do you sometimes rise at 3 a.m. with us and wonder–
where to stretch the tips of your celestial body
when it has outgrown its shell?
Do you look around and find the slips and circles of us
glittering and glowing in our amorphous forms?
Perhaps catching the thick of one piece in motion
the sliver of another in static trance
as we bounce and slither awkward forms around in happy commotion.
We see you wondering why, reasoning whether to join in.
With each movement,
we open and form this comforting pattern of color and texture
that never lived before, that never lived before.
And yet we are alive here together, we are.
Our wild bodies warming the unspoken.
Will you allow yourself to join us?
