Wind (1972)

Wind

by Marc Mangel

the wind is such a funy creature

it dances between your fingers

an eulsive butterfly that

you’ll never catch

 

and plays

TIC

TAC

TOE

on your face while your head

turns wildly trying to block

 

or makes trees whistle such a strange

tune in the

night

 

but most of all I love the dance

of the wind

a weightless ballerina

springing and flying (for lack of ballet jargon)

upon eyes and ears and lips

the dance of life

 

May 1972
