"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Austin Alexis


Merce Cunningham Event

Dance is ephemeral
each step stays
as it disappears....

These movements exist as
fey flights of hummingbirds,
dangling life of dragonflies
magnified, then erased....

Simultaneous sequence.
Quick glitterings.
Shards of glass
enjoying their fragmentation
as an audience sifts through
this elaborate puzzle,
letting set pieces fall
wonderfully out of place.
