Body Language [Poem]

Our bodies are fluent in languages
older than time itself
each movement an echo
of everything that has come before
and will go after

Dancing is our oral tradition
our bodies moving
to rhythms
we forgot how to remember
but know by heart

Guided by a billion neuron
firing of their
own accord
Our orbits tango tenderly
among the stars
