Graceful Pirouette


Shoulders rigid in anger
she burns me with her glare
straightens her attitude
gathers her skirt

At the banister she
stands retiré devant
catches my eye with her poise
pirouettes to the landing
descending the stairs gracefully
she pauses tilts her head
finally speaking her mind

“Fuck off.”

continuing her departure with pure elegance;
leaving me breathless in wonder.

      1. Oh but you didn’t hear her enunciation! Impeccable I tell you. It was like each letter had been savoured and selected for a special drop of venom. Simply delightful. Yes yes indeed. 🙂
