The warrior as Nijinsky

There’s a method in madness to slay the brute:
You cannot meet force with force
Dance, dance around it like a matador
& So it goes: Like the wind you flow
in & out of the emperor’s hall
to fly like a bird on her blasts of truth.
If you hear the sound of one hand clapping
you’ve made the invisible air visible
& In the night where stars twinkle
the beasts of shadows cower in a sea of light
Be nimble of feet, escape the vise of siege
Encircle her majesty & cabal from all sides
You cannot meet force with force
Dance, dance around it like a matador.
