Day Three – “Shall We Dance?”

Here is the Jim Harrison Prompt for today:

“As with dancing you have to learn the steps”

Feel free to join me in these 28 Days of Unreason as I use lines from Harrison’s Songs of Unreason as writing prompts.   Here is my poem for today:  “Shall We Dance? ”           Cheers!  Jilly

 

Careful lighting
Critical decor
She enters too early

As always;
never fashionably late

Perilous table selection

Too large
she is a part
of a big party yet
to arrive

Too small
A tete-a-tete

They begin
to float in
enter
“Unworthy”
followed closely
by “Failure” and “Botch”
All her old beaus
are here
tonight
but the question
that remains

With which demon

IMG_1869 (2)shall she dance;
With which demon
shall she go home?
