Sometimes I Write Poetry: The Sway of a Soloist

Updated: Oct 20, 2023

The Sway of a Soloist prompts the call and response,

A prelude to a united broadcast;

Second lines and sensual duets,

Ricochetting shoulders and Jookin.

Stamina trickles across our time,

The soloist is now the unified ensemble,

Try not to look so far behind.

The Discovery of a pronounced foot leads us back,

We arrived at a refined version of the beginning.

The soloist maintains the effort of the memory,

The sway of the dance lingers;

Curtain time.​
