Dave Hughes: Watch Your Feet

Can’t we dance

Just once in time

Just once our steps acquiesce to the need of

Our partners need

Swing a little to the  sound

Of the world’s sway and swirl

Is it too hard

To hold my brothers hand

Is it too ridiculous to hold up my sister’s dreams

Can’t I walk you farther down the road

Rather than point out

Darker paths

Who told me I can’t feed your soul

And hunger for your love

When did the distaste for truth

Outrun my need for need

Why can you no longer hear

My heart

My hurt

And feel

Your part

In our whirling

Beautiful splashing
