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
strobe

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

unburdened
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
imagining

Shall we have a conversation?
