lyrics

Take the island dance in which you
take two sticks to dance betwixt
clapping in a rhythm that could
snap your toes between the sticks

Take the Hindu ritual
in which you fill your face with knives

clap along and sing a carol to the peril of our lives

Leap as though your feet could be
ensnared between a pair of poles

Turn like whirling dervishes
that spurn the throes of vertigo

Dance as though there's centipedes
and aphids in your underwear
and the sky is falling and the stars are sticking in your hair

You forgot: You're mortal
You are not: immortal
You forgot: You're mortal
You are not: immortal
