"...We have come to be danced
not the nice invisible, self-conscious shuffle
but the matted hair flying, voodoo mama
shaman shakin' ancient bones dance
the strip us from our castings, return our wings
sharpen our claws & tongues dance
the shed dead cells and slip into
the luminous skin of love dance..." Jewel Mathieson
