Growing up, I never learned how to dance with another person.
I learned how to orbit them,
for they were the center of gravity;
how to flatten myself against walls,
for they always filled the room.

So I’m working on learning those things now:
how to be equal,
how to take up space,
how to give and take,
how to dance.
