"I get out there and think, 'whatever happens, happens. If i fall, I fall. This is live theater and i am living in it.'"
-Ashley Bouder
New York City Ballet Principal Dancer

One of me
Against on thousand souls

My opinion’s never right;
I’m not pretty enough
Or so I’m told

But I’m still whole

Their tearing claws
And piercing calls
Moans and sobs
On and on

One thousand pairs of hands
Grab for my heart
They long to shred it

Part by part

Their screams drown
The chaos of my thoughts
And I’m alone
Left with nothing at all

How much more
Can I endure?
If their hands keep snatching
I’ll be no more
