Intelligence is understanding Shakespeare,
or at least wanting to.
It is knowing when to speak up and the effect of our words:
A word well placed can make someone fall in love
or start a revolution.
It is knowing when to shut up, that in these moments of silence,
we are brought back to when humanity
did not need language to express community.
It is comprehending the complexities of music
from adagios to tonics
by feeling how the human body sways and grinds to it.
It is the science of dance.
