For Ernesto Priego's Not Even Dogs

You
Said: Poetry
Is like Music

But
Priego's jainaku
Is like Dance

The Body speaks
In these
Poems

I
Found myself
Following the moves

Breathe,
Flow, Pause,
Piroutte, Undulate, Gyrate

Try
Different rhythm
For another meaning

Haynaku
As Dancing
Is Body speaking

Can
Your Body
Speak for you?
-------
Thank you, Ernesto, for your poetry. The poems remind me a lot of Eric Gamalinda's (before I noticed that he's blurbed this). I was surprised by the bodily resonances...maybe it takes a large dose of single-author haynakus to move my (fat) body!
