This place.

This place hits like a drum

and we march

our feet stamping out polyrhythms

stretched across its taut surface

and we feel its tremors as we move

this place hits like a drum.

 

This place beats like a heart

and we move

flowing in and out through its passages

guided by the current and each other

we don’t pause or we’re lost

this place beats like a heart.

 

This place sings like a bird

and we listen

sometimes hearing glimpses of a line

carried on the wind, a gap in the clouds

we stop, strain, and forget

this place sings like a bird.

 

This place breathes like a beast

and we feel

streets rising and falling beneath us

shifting across tides of time

we wait for its lidded eye to open

this place breathes like a beast.

 

attack

decay

tense

release

inhale

exhale

and

here

we

are.
