Dance with Me  Collage & Poetry by Kathy Cotton



On the hardwoods

an unbuttoned smile

rumples into laughter,

slips off a shoulder,

drops into trampled heaps

beneath rhythm’s bare feet.

I whirl wild across the empty boards, soar alone

in endless space, until

the music stops

and I find myselfmyself

smiling at a crowd of open eyes,

my Clark Kent life

stripped down  to Superman tights

and the phone-booth door

wide open.

Kathy Cotton, 2010
