Dancing Along the Jaws of Corruption


Those nights when anthropomorphic dreams


Invite you to a death dance


Where ancestral spirits


Take possession of you


And your soul soars across the heavens


Fraternizing with the stars


Only to rest under the shadow of the Northern star


Constant as rigor mortis


We wake to a debilitating pandemic


Freezing our movements and our joy yet


Stirring our thoughts


At the edge of a new dawn
