wish

Once
I danced naked on a stage
soaking in the warmth
eager to feel my body
glide and tense
with the sliding breaths
of a singing violin.

Morning comes
and pain blossoms
with lifting eyes
and I wish.

Then
I will stand
and stomp and
spin -
the crescendo
drawing me higher
to ecstasy.





This poem is inspired by real toads, real life, Lindsey Stirling, stripping, and tai chi
