It was during those days

strange and wonderful, when

timid turned to tumultous

mystery gave way to mastery

each moment hiding its own fear

(the possibility of it being the last)

the early, furtive attempts

revealed suprising results

of unbridled motion and sound.

when we rode that graceful white horse

of newly discovered combinations of

movement and placement,

positional pliability explored

in a densely passionate fog of

sweat and breath and smoke.
