Let your lungs expand with a sharp intake of breath.
Now they’re deflating with our singing, screeching, actually.
Grab my hands.
Right foot first, left now.
Let yourself fall, old Hollywood-film style.
I’ll catch you,
I always will.
The music’s getting faster, pick up the pace.
We’re spinning, don’t think of the eyes on you, they’re not.
They’re on our feet.
& we’re dancing, dancing, falling,
Let yourself fall, fall for me, for the ground headfirst.
Feel your heart hammering against your chest now, in tune with the floor’s vibrations, the song’s bass.
Shall we dance again?
