A dance of seductive perfection

Echoing spikes meeting a hard world

The attired dancer

Arousing impure thought

A guarantee of carnal pleasure

 

Strutting, not of pride, probably from habit

Free advertisement of product

Destined to sell... for a fee

Pay to play as they say

 

The taste of passion echoing crisp paper

A practiced duet of pleasure

each pitch, breath and sigh

A synchronism of the flesh

 

For time has become a living

And to waste it squanders the dream...

The dream... of getting out!

To where who knows or cares, just... out!

 

And the actress prepares for the next take

Dreamily creasing a mask battered by life

Echoing spikes meet an unyielding world

And the dance begins once more
