Glissade, etc.

She says:
“It’s okay, I did this
when I was younger.”
And my heart does a
stutter step.
I did too.
But the combination
won’t stick, and I
flounder, a dancer
with two left feet.

13 year old me would
give up, convinced
of being lesser.

31 year old me lingers, alone,
and leaps across the floor
again and
again and
again. Until I
understand the
intricate moves of
mind
body
feet.
