Day 90: Translate

#90 Translate one prompt into another medium

Translation of Day 82

There's this girl
This woman
There's this woman, and she's in her bedroom

Here's her unmade bed
awkward clusters of pictures on the wall
guitar sulking in the corner

She's dancing
bare feet dancing
Not dancing-in-your-bedroom dancing

She's toes splayed
an arm drifting out to the side
just floating out there forgotten
She's looking at someones who aren't there
looking at her own toes
She's interested in her own toes
testing a transfer of weight
What are they doing down there?

This is dancing:
a deep knee bend
an exploratory swivel of the hips
pretending to be a bird
