Corona Pt. 17

The Recital
They danced to the Taylor Swift song Lover
Three girls in moss green gauzy dresses
Channeling through their ballet movements
The longings of an adult woman in love. 
I danced like them once
In an itchy yellow tulle skirt
To the Bright Sunshiny Day song
Which is why I'll always remember the movie Cool Runnings. 
I danced at the Emery Theatre in Cincinnati
A venue with two balconies, two thousand seats, 
A grand stage, and a giant green room
Where I sat scratching with my classmates 
Before and after our turn on stage. 
These three girls danced in a parking lot
In taped off squares they couldn't cross
No matter how much the music moved them.
