Yolanda's Poem

 

Written in response to a workshop task led by dancer Luke Birch.

She might...wave
She might...sigh
She might...ta dah!
She might...hold herself up
She might...side step
She might...swop, rub, brush
She might...groove
She might...be light
She might...be your light
She might...listen
She might...show her hand
She might...pitter patter, tippy toes, wow
She might...be a shadow
She might...have sole
She might...shuffle eyes
She might...dive right in
She might...be stuck
She might...be stuck
She is stuck
She might...step, switch, hinge
She might...wave.
