The Dance by Martine Cullum

Taller, more graceful

The music begins

She feels her heart open

Arms reach out like wings

The drop of her shoulder

The rise of her chin

She smiles to her partner

Who leads the routine

In tandem, they move

Every inch of the floor

Dips, sways and chasses

Perfection! Encore!

But the music must end

She returns to her chair

Once again just the plain girl

Who nobody saw
