Dance in Nudity by Joy Okwori

Let the tongue dance
without false music
playing, with no stage set.
Let the tongue dance.

It won’t be cut off
should you let it dance,
But like a lamp in the dark
it will reveal the evil concealed.

Let the tongue dance
with no polished heels
or painted lips, let the
tongue dance in nudity.

That all may see with
no hindrance of any
nature. Should your
tongue hold truth and
healing in it, oh thou
beauty beneath the sun
do let it dance.
