Ode to Alo

9ish til 10ish. The Second Floor Collective gathers at Dovercourt House. Ana-Francisca reads Pablo Neruda’s poem “Ode to Lemon” first in English, then in Spanish. The dance that unfolds with Alo plays with torn fabric, pastels that slide across cloth and skin, and lines that cross the floor. An interplay of energies. Reaching forward, rolling back. Pulling and rolling and reaching through the poem. Words limber. Salt lingers from a poem we read earlier.  Alo draws pastel pigments from between her toes up along the top of her arch and shin bone. Her dances tonight were beautiful. Biking home it was cold and warm at the same time. Bright stars tinkle. Alice is calling from outside while I write.
