Frequently Amazed She Hasn’t Fallen Over Yet

frequently-amazed

Everything is pivot.
The ball of the foot the axis
      for the whole dancefloor.
            Wrists rotating.
            A whole hand slipping skinsoft
around a finger:
enough momentum for a double spin.
Loud shoes.
Montuno wrapping around tumbao.
            Wrap her in, 
            spin her out.
            Even her smile pivots 
around her left 
      canine.
