dance #54, the first night we meet

The first night we meet


10:20 p.m. A 4 minute duet in the study. The puppet and I. She arrived today in a large, light box from Cambridge, MA. A surprise gift from Debra. The note says: I think she’d like to live with you for awhile.” I’m caught instantly. I learn to hold her. we move together. I’m spellbound. She is powerful. We move in circles. Her arms circling. Orbits. Ellipses.

It is a cool, crisp night. Clear skies. Orion slings his sword high up in the sky. Alice is close by while I dance and draw. She sits in my lap watching while I type.
