orbit (unfinished)

What if we danced to Un Bal and La Valse;
To a salsa and a waltz and a tango at once?
Twirling in tandem in a unified whirl;
Curling forever in centrifugal force;
A swirling spindle of two colors meshed;
Spun together in cloth, sweat-drenched;

Clung together in gravitational orbit;

Two bodies spinning forever in space

Two motions erased in one torque
