Awkward People Dancing



The rhythm of the night com-
petes with the mus
                  ic in her
head to great effect, as
if
  her faltering steps conformed to some strange
  tertiary rhythm
     or she was being constricted
     by a boa in brief fits.

He
  alternately sways, arhythmically,
                                   or
copies her moves,
                 or
perhaps flails, or executes a sort of ane
                                         mic twist,

out of place, exposed beneath
the powerful glare of
sense of self.
   together they dance alone together,
   each asking the same questions
 
   what does s/he see in me?
   &  am I doing this right?
   even though every dance
   is still beauty
      to the person who
   was brave enough
   to come to this
   smokey club to dance
   with his/her you.

Wow.

And for what it's worth, yours are the only total non-sequitors I read. Thank you.
