In this new collection by Simeon Dumdum, he likens the various facets and effects of dance with poetry, and to its soul that "paces about like a caged animal" inside the rhythms and patterns of movement. Dumdum posits that poetry should arouse similar effects in its craft; in his words: "One dances with the meaning and sound of words, which necessarily one must harness into a team. No matter how free the verse, the words must trot in tandem, like foxes that despite their wildness must keep to a clip-clop on the road of a morning in the country. A poem must dance. A poem must foxtrot or forever walk as prose."
