The women in me, oh how they dance!
One swinging her hips with a hum on her lips as she stirs a
pot of beans.
Her hands drenched in sauces and oblivious to the others in
quiet contentment.

The women in me, oh how they dance!
Another one matching the click of her heels to the click of her
computer.
Her fingers bruised with direction and her mind a downtown
street.

The women in me, oh how they dance!
A third whispering lullabies and quieting babies.
Her nostrils filled with the smell of lilacs and her heart a
cradle wearing joy.

The women in me, oh how they dance!
The secret one hidden under sheets with prowess as she
conquers the man learning her geography.
Her legs slick with love and her fire glowing.

The woman in me, oh how she dances.
Interlocking hands with the others in reunion and singing to
the moon of our rejoices.

I am one made of many.
