ongegrendelde danse

uit hierdie wilde dans steier ek
die roekelose energie
nog taai om my kuite
spin ek uitbundig in sirkels met
die onstuitbare pols wat fakkels deur my are pomp
dit kan net vrugbare klank wees
wat so lewendig in my binnenste kom sit

met ‘n indringerige ritmika
jaag die koors van die wil deur die klank-tonnels
en hervorm my voete tot
primitiewe passies dans

styfgespande spiere tril ritualisties
soos die ongegrendelde danse oor die vlaktes skud
waaragtig! hierdie vasgevange energie ken geen gelyke
die dans praat in een taal
wat alle lywe sonder serebraliteit kan verstaan
as jy ‘n paar druppels van ware vryheid wil proe
sprei jou lyf oop in Die Dans


unbridled dancing

from this wild dance i stumble
the reckless energy
still clinging to my calves
i spin unguardedly in circles with
the irrepressible pulse that pumps firelight through my veins
it can only be fertile sound
that comes and sits so alive in my guts

with an insistent rhythmica
the fever of the will comes charging through the tunnels of sound
and reforms my feet into
primitive pulsations of dance

tautly strung muscles tremble ritualistically
as the unbridled dancing quakes over the plains
yes, indeed! this captured energy knows no equal
the dance speaks in one language
that all bodies fathom without cerebrality
if you want to taste a few drops of true freedom
spread your body open into The Dance
