FIREDANCE

July 15, 2013

.

Savagely,

I can dance around a fire.

If the spirits take notice,

If they’re drawn by this sight,

As  we   might  be

lured by the light

of dead stars,  already,

If the spirits take notice of

Me  at the blaze;

My body and face,

(Not at all faking

What I choose  to let loose)

Shiny, and shaking  away my disease,

Let said spirits kindly

sign off on release.

.

.

All art is a struggle to be, in a particular sort of way, virtuous.

Iris Murdoch JULY 15,1919–FEB 8,1999  REST IN PEACE
