Let's Dance




I’ve always been a fan of the dance formally known as “banter”.

A little soft shoe, perhaps some Charleston, ending with the foxtrot.

A complimentary partner.

Constantly one step ahead, contemplating my next move.

A witty exchange, embodying all of Chess’ pieces.

Reserving, the key components for the ultimate finale.

As we simultaneously bow our heads, and the curtain, falls.

    For a moment as I read I thought of Donna Summers, Let's Dance for love, but your piece is still a great write.

      Thank you.

      I'll do a soft shoe routine to "Me and my shadow". I'm a little old for the Charlestown. Would only last a minute, if that. Did lots of musical theater in the past. This was a delightfully refreshing poem. Kudos.

        Thank you. It was completely metaphorical. The exchange or the dance, I reference is banter. The verbal ping-pong

        Very cool!
