    As I sink into the mud of society, I feel the press of feet all over my body. A deluge of eternal tears, temporal, yet soaking, has muddied the earth and I feel a press in my chest.

    A million feet of aborted babies, dance a celebration of life momentarily lived. A million feet of black inmates, stomp my stomach with boots of caged aggression.

    A million mothers of dead sons lost to gangster streets sachet and sway down my thighs to a morbid death march in
    a straight line of black.

    My calves play host to billions of fatherless children. They hop hopscotch at midnight and dream dreams of a two-step with no partner.

    My back is hardwood dance floor, splintered, with no wax.
    Upon it billions of childless mothers and overly fertile fathers reach for one another in a tragic tango as fingertips fleetingly fail to link and no arms embrace to fill the void, complete the dance, so the music stops.

    I continue to sink as my feet dance upon my forehead…
