Dream Dance

a dream poem, 2004-2006, by Allan Goldhammer

toes like thunder
toes like hooves
toes like the most perfect diamonds
toes to catch the air
and hang on nothing

I have them

under night's shade
i step forth
off skyscrapers
off cliffs
off tall domed ancient roofs
into the thin air
vibrating with the roar of cities

and dance there

toes stepping there
and body gliding in curves
twirl and turn
spin canter
playing my body
to the grand music
ringing in the night

and I above the rest
dancing beyond reach
in balanced swirl
upside down
knowing the air
it kisses me as I
balance as a surfer does
riding the knife edge
of the possible
