the professionals

  … we travel through this panel of time on our pulse
a gentle, insistent tap pushing us through the congestion of highways overlapping

human, darling, human
who on the way, wanted to play
on and off that beat
back and fast forward
up down
loving around

in this business of dance and music
capital performances for this audience of our own mortality
what is dance and music
but our own dream variations
of what this rhythm should be
all this running on the spot
progressing to the same waking end
to just fill our cups full
before being drained
and in that, we are the professionals
