    Take on “I’m not a Painter” by Saige Rook

    I am not a speaker, I am a dancer.

    Some days to be a dancer seems a curse

    Rather than to speak.


    Words wondering out of mouths of speaker ,

    Offering clarity I wish I could compose,

    As a form of communication

    Building bridges, making ties…


    But me?

    My mouth manages to be the only part held still,

    Offering interpretation with all ends open,

    As a form of connection

    Condensing confusion, highlighting depth…


    It is a difference of reality

    Retailored or contained.
