Two dancers stand opposite each other
And start moving in concentric circles
Lines intersecting in spider web
Writing their own stories in monologues
Speaking to themselves in silence.
I watch their performance
And create my own pantomime
Crying and shouting and standing still.
There are things that seem similar
Maze and labyrinth sound indistinguishable
A parrot can speak on it’s own
An echo can’t.
We can hunt with a spear
Or a bow and arrow
One is easier to learn, the other harder.
Which animal is the first to walk the earth?
Which is the fastest and the weakest?
Shall I feel excited for the answers?
