Fault me — I henceforth forego jitterbugging feet
Assert some bias in my blood which rejects dancehall beat

As time tiktoks, I cling instead to swaying with the strings
Tango, Pan-Hellenic sway, and all such passion brings

Step danced exclamations void of pop-cultural fray
Barefoot, solo, or with friends — come…blur night into day

Your Name

Yes to just you
Remind me your name
Let us dress fancy
Strut down grand stairways 
Dance in the dust of once-hallowed halls
Both end up barefoot with no news of our shoes
Yes I’d be honored 
Remind me your name
