Universal Dance - Poem by Patti Masterman

All pain can't be vanished
All evil can't be vanquished-
That was not included
In the original contract.

You would have to go way back,
Past the primordial ocean- start over again
Take the pincers from the sea-crabs;
Furrows, from the primate brain-

But you would never get the same result
It was never about being only one polarity-
Only the dance of two poles interweaving,
Two opposites perfectly attracting

Only the perfect symmetry of two extremes
Kissing, with a slight touch of asymmetry,
Which broke loose the homeostatic ocean:
Matter froze out into form then, from nonexistence.
