Turn and turn and turn

Photo by Dan Fraser

Despite his confidence

that he was an excellent manager

of the flow of time

through his hips and knees

he was forced to admit

that living in a dance-like rhythm

within every single minute

of every hour of every day

was not only a reluctant choice

but a secret fire 

that burned up and down

the hidden molecules 

beneath his naked skin

turn and turn and turn
