whirlwind

in a whirl of tulle

and white lights

and lace

rosin’d pointes rock away

sticky grid lock

in their place12370988_10102539865236501_2810790328239385870_o

parties move on

from Silberhaus to 

my own

a growing tree stacks its dust

where festive bulbs

once shone

12371125_10102539865176621_6037296968735203367_o

flower petals brown

in dark skips where

they lie

whispering of stale sweets

and waltzes 

gone by

12375198_10102539865281411_6673682486465345044_o

gauzy ghosts of dancers

now wisp in 

their place

flooding the empty theater

with a harrowed

hallow grace

12365944_10102539865286401_8795039994269333286_o

final bits of chalky snow

flake away and off

the stage

a calendar completely cracked

it must be time to turn

the page…
