Dance with Desire (and Layton poem), blog entry, Jan 5 06
by Joe Merrick
Irving Layton, 1912-2006
January 5, 2006

They dance best who dance with desire,
Who lifting feet of fire from fire
Weave before they lie down
a red carpet for the sun.

~from ‘For Mao Tse-Tung: A Meditation on Flies and Kings’.
