Dance Until...

by Georgianne Cowan

Dance until the wild one is sprung from its cage
 Dance until gravity drops its stilettos
Dance until uncertainty becomes a tuning fork
Dance until the mannequins step down from their displays
Dance until fear inherits a spear from anger
Dance until perfection rests its case
Dance until aging is the standard for beginning again
Dance until the gates of heaven fly open
Dance until joy becomes the new normal
Dance until there are no more excuses not to
Dance until the jester is invited to tea with the king
Dance until you have no idea you're dancing
Dance until you’ve promised everything and nothing
Dance until yesterday and tomorrow become right now
until, when all is said and done
all that remains
