The Ballerina

she smoothly swings a fluid leap
her satin dancing slippers brush the floorboards
of a resin-tacky retreat,

she pitter-patter slides the
essential sensual distant eyes
across her thin extended thighs--

wood splinters slowly inside her head;
she is adhered to this lilting life,
and someday her joints will creak
