DEAR PINA,–Part Three

Watch:
these are my                                             words
these shapes
on the page
Watch me
tilt, orient differently–
tilt, pivot, zig zag, tilt,
give the back a break,
tilt, pivot, zig zag, tilt,
give the head a break,
tilt, pivot, zig zag, tilt,
and circle into self
to adjust placement
to start again. And
circle into self to
adjust placement to
start again. And circle
into heart to adjust
placement to start
again. And circle into
self to adjust place
meant to start again. And
circle into self again
to just the place to
start again.

I mean
to start.
Again.

My path is on the outside track.
I’m carried in the head, not the leg–
head through the space in the arm,
head towards the left shoulder,
head resting on the neck,
head into the pivot,
head down.

Look at me, if possible.
Hold my head while
I circle into self
to start again.
