Leaning on each other, the two legs create a dance-like movement that defies gravity. The steps are awkward, pointing to a moment of self-delusion or to oblivion to the outside world. Noticing that one thigh cuddles against the other changes the contextual image:  the two are no longer one person’s legs, but a couple in a moment of closeness.
