Hips form a bridge spanning a river, constructed tenuously, easily destroyed by the body in undulating waves. Nerves electric contorting limbs in seizure, brain losing all control of its kingdom, breath stutters, indecisive about the future of inhaling and exhaling. The freedom of chaos, for however brief, intoxicates me, life affirmed in a reality fragmented and hallucinatory. Calm washes in with the high tide receding undetected, breath lightens, limbs loosen, heartbeat softens, until I am gone. Aleathia Drehmer 2006
