Playing capoeira

I am a child
playing capoeira.
I am a child
watching capoeira, graceful
dance, the only
sound that of bare feet on floor,
the movement of air.
inverted body balanced
on one arm, flipping, tumbling
legs kicking, partner ducking,
then swinging round
to find air.
I am a child playing capoeira,
learning to crawl,
watching the others
