Clothes pegs: in a line, on a line.
Little dancing people
moving to and fro,
backwards and forwards, this way and that.
Elegant and charming,
graceful in silk shawls from a spider,
a hundred dew-drop diamonds
on every inch
of the soft woven stitch –
an intricate design
from Arachne’s weave.
They dance in a cool morning breeze,
shades of green, violet, and blue –
all shapes, colours, sizes,
tight metal corsets
keeping them together!
A mixture of life; a gathering of dance.
The pristine sequence
of the line dance –
in order and in time; immaculate precision,
bodies entwined, on a thin clear line.
