The Likeness of (a Capoeirista)

Whom do you look like when you love
Whom did you watch and try to adopt their movements,
Bending and turning, twisting and sliding,
To evade or face, capture and hold
Or block and bring down
Mother or father, friend or stranger,
We all take on the likeness of what we make our own,
Displaying or giving away our best mentor,
Or at least who we thought was worthy of imitation
