Why Do They Dance In Circles?

The club prefers its steaming
fantastic sex to the struggles
and efforts of passion's product,
which is too close to love. Love
cannot be risked; it's too close to
partner-- as in Dance. Partner.
The clubbies dance alone.

Dance is an exercise of
pheremonal capture, a show
for those whose sight usurps
touch in the love of desire.
(As distinct from love.)
Dance is an approach for those
who cannot speak. Pity those
who cannot speak, for dance
they don't desire.
