which was inventive if unkind

for just a moment

we hit the dance floor

a little patch of shiny space

in the middle of the place

started throwing shapes

smiling at her

as the drink took hold

& for just a moment

I thought I could be

one of those guys

hit by the spotlight

showing off my moves

all lissom & grace

but no

she had a frown on

we headed back to sit

ordered more drinks

as she opened old wounds

where’d you get those moves

some old teen movie

surfer beach bum scenes back in ’66?

which was inventive if unkind

now she wonders out loud

why I don’t take her dancing

no more

she forgets her scenes

but not mine somehow
