Nijinsky's Legacy

Nijinsky's powerful upper thighs
Friends, Americans, countrymen,
Lend Nijinsky a leg

Vaslav Nijinsky's missing brain
Belated carnation from the early 20th century

Our legs take us through summer evenings lawns crickets
Our legs erupt into music as we walk.

Kirby Olson's chapbook Waiting for the Rapture was published by
Persistencia Press in 2006.  He teaches philosophy and literature at
SUNY-Delhi in the western Catskills.
