Poem: Happenstance and Circumstance

I took a chance
asked you to dance
rising music beating time
broken staccato of my heart
you smiled politely
pirouetted away
slow motion

I danced on my own
solo dancer in the throng
co-mingled rhapsody
hormonal body sweat
swaying and rising
disco flare

I walked home
cold moonlight sliding
black leather footfalls
clacking on cracked sidewalks
up creaking wooden stairs
to lay naked on satin
in the neon darkness

Shall we have a conversation?
