I like this poem.  It speaks to the many opportunities
for a serendipitous rendezvous with something more
than is currently being experienced.

An intersection with something, as yet undetermined,
and perhaps even missed were it not for just a little
inclination to be open to the magic of a different dance.


Someone dancing inside us
learned only a few steps:
the “Do-Your-Work” in 4/4 time,
the “What-Do-You-Expect” waltz.
He hasn’t noticed yet the woman
standing away from the lamp,
the one with black eyes
who knows the rhumba,
and strange steps in jumpy rhythms
form the mountains in Bulgaria.
If they dance together,
something unexpected will happen.
If they don’t, the next world
will be a lot like this one.
