a dancing body is much more than limbs and skin muscles brain tissues hair blood: beyond its shadows and its recyclable waste propelled to invisible lands faraway, acquaintances, abuses, inhaled gas, our body continues to expand, grow heads, lose leaves and flower, change rank, shift shape, distance, scars, affiliation and birthmarks
a dancing body resists gravity with every move and resists inertia with every step and resists death with every breath
