i am dancing

crashing waters

week of turbulence

i am dancing with a bad lower back

but i am dancing

after all the heartbreak, grief,

the endless hours of work,

the hung head, the doubt,

the failure, the betrayal,

the guilt and insecurities

the eating up of the insides,

after all this turmoil

so much loving

marked by loss

i am in a bar in highland park

i have friends who love me

some i know well

some i am getting to know

there is music playing

i am dancing

see this?

i am dancing.
