The Movement of Movement

--for Maya Deren

The mother
Of us all
Is movement
1st movement
1st as dance
Is naked
The naked
Form of movement
A space where things
Can no longer be put
Simply put, is time

For the body the
Body arrested
To rest
In the edit
Cut to dance on film
Is something different
To edit this
To fall or ascend

Or grace
Some affirmation the mother
Of us all
Born in that movement
1st movement of movement
The empty body
The body
Before the body
The body after the body
Was the body
Lightened, ever lightened
By air and light.
