Joshua

He danced with his arms flung out

There was no sound, not a note to be heard

Yet he turned round and round,

head thrown back — feet stepping high

ascending an unseen stairway — to nowhere

To the primal beat intertwined

Voices of the Angels lifted in song —

What Angels?

Wondering, watching

His face dripping unknown pain

And joy

Twisting him into some demonic thing

With a werewolf’s smile
