And the Universe Danced with us (aka Dancing in Maun).

Tonight, let us dance
let us find ourselves a-rhythm
with each sautéing step,
the world will watch us
cook up a feast
let the universe wing a beat
roll out her thundering drums
sing herself hoarse
in the shouting sounds
of the furious dry waves.
Let her throw a hissy fit,

stomping her flat feet
on the tables of plateaus
between her valleys of vexations.
Dancing in Maun POETAVANGO
We shall continue our dance, moving,
and unmoved by her spitting fires
lost in the volcanic excitement
of the maddening Maun mountains.
And we shall continue to dance;
sizzle and steam in the rod of sweat
running down the spines of our backs
and through our gyrating, pulsating thighs.
Dance, like an uncaged body of clouds
of radiant rain that pours, overflowing
river Thamalakane’s shores
soaking up Earth’s hard mud of lies
and breathing out truth on our pores.
We are finding ourselves, a-rhythm again
made of stringed drums of dreams
We will wear her heart out
and break down her body of walls
and soon,
she will taste of our spicy meal
and drunk in our juices and oils
sashaying and swaying,
she, the universe,
will dance and feast with us.
so tonight in Maun,
Sisters, let us dance.
