SHE SEEKS OUT HER SCRUFFY TABBY

silhouette-of-woman-behind-screen

Later, in a portacabin

West of Berlin

She would practice the violin

All the while dreaming of

The quarry fertile wetlands

Where full bellied herons up high

Think deep thoughts

 

For now though a

Crust to earn

Tucked away

Out of sight behind the

Teasing cloak of purdah

Ingenuity her gift

The dancer of

Free spirit

Waits her moment

The spurt of a

Lone spotlight

Her cue

A phonic groove of

Baited breath in the

Darkness beyond the

Proscenium arch a

Tinnitus tainted abetment

 

That she taunts and

Titillates in equal measure

Goes with the territory

 

The suited and booted

May salivate at

First bare glimpse

May pulsate inside out

Come finale, yet that

A predictable thing

Par for the course

When the avant garde

Soloist uncovers

 

Alter ego done with

Show over, now

In the bosom of

Roosts solitude

She seeks out her

Scruffy tabby

Like her, an oddball

Nonconformist

Tamed yet untamed

 

The pair share a

Reciprocal reverence

Albeit a membrane bond

The way a connection should be

More precious that way

A clever one is

The dancer

    • Thank you for that and also for the Twitter thing – much appreciated although (idiot that I am) I still don’t understand Twitter! I get confused every time I venture toward it!
