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.
