Double Dutch

Double Dutch

by Teresa Leggard

smooth, balanced and clean

at first they fit together

so connected it was hard to tell

where one stopped and the other began

floating on air

swaying to perpetual song

stepping lively

rhythm lovely

this tango of nicks and scrapes was

still a beautiful dance

pick up the pace... who skipped a beat?

adjust the tempo

try to get it back, but

tripped by a stone

rhythm blown

tango turns

break dance

their go is over

who's next?
