Peter and the Wolf

by Joseph Mills

Most dances are sexual,
pretend otherwise
                                        all you want,

but there’s also the violence,
the alpha aggression
                    and animalistic desire,

which we appreciate
even applaud
as long as its stylish,
                                    with the music.

Let’s be honest.

                                        No one wants
to be Peter.

Even the Wolf fantasizes
about being the Wolf.
