Take a step back

you are dancing

afterall

so pause

before the two step

and twirl

catch the room off-guard

enter the dangerous

where each foot follows a line

and avoids it

Exchange hands

and side-step feet

the beat must be neat

perfection

and everybody else

smelling their perfume

nature’s rehearsal

for the back room

or the dancer

who cuts his legs

to the music’s moan

a triumph of action

his lost awareness

to solemn stares

from those

watching him

the man who dances alone.
