Shame naively ever to imagine that dances of delight might advance a progressive agenda; shame that, having noticed powers greater than Terpsichore’s reducing even her best steps to nothing but opiate entertainment, I continue.
Shame that dancing as generous giving is dogged by an urge to toward heroism; shame that valiance has been highlighted as negative because of knavish versions within patriarchy.
Shame that as I undergo shattering of consciousness with each new piece, I cannot help wishing viewers to experience comparable fracturing; shame to presume that a spectator might consider psychokinetic paroxysm edifying.
