would keep us quaking in fear
better to dictate
their demands, but here’s a spin…

‘midst these gilded halls
lovers danced to strings and lutes
their dreams frail as dust
those who dream dance on
promenades of hopeful bliss
though the music ends

o, how i could linger
here listening to you
breathe, but morning
comes to devour the
magic of the night…
days call for dancing

when sitting front row center
can-can dancers flash.
