March 30, 2016 - Little Green Slipper

LITTLE GREEN SLIPPER

Little green slipper
peeping out from under a formal gown
of propriety and containment
sneaking
gliding on to the dance floor
amid a musty old song
the band tired and exhausted now
the finale.

A new secret
of beaux and dance cards
swollen with pulsing promises
dewy kisses
last year’s belles envious
desperately trying to halt
the onslaught of youth
beginning.

A new story
the same as the old story
with familiar characters
haunting
dancing to familiar music
in a pattern set in stone
forged in alchemy
and inescapable.

 
Little green slipper.
