NOTES AS POEMS
(Dance of Companionship)
Dance of Companionship
A simmering dish
While more dance-hungry ones do what they have to do
Jenny calls this “allowing oneself to not not move”
who phrased this? Deborah Hay?
choose the plates
pour some drinks
and the conversations will flow
you can go for a walk
Reveal the multiplied embodiments.
Joy washes my face.
I hope you come again.
Parent as environment as companion.
(That took a while)
Passing the milk
to meet its body later on.
Last week I brought up the taste for technicity
As another companion
This morning I blitz-called Anne to ask her for a technical angle
I could smuggle into the dance
She gave me symmetry. And reversibility.
I got so excited that the dance might have turnedInto more of a full-on technique class
Than I had intended.
Symmetry of the eyes, the ears, the lungs
make sure dance is more important than you
without a doubt
Today was less people, lower energy, more pausing
and of us as a group
let conversations echo in far and close corners
and not make dance a personal matter?
