The Dancer

was some kind
of spaced
speed queen
dressed in
black
diaphanous
veiled ankle
length skirt
wind billowed
black wraparound
eye shades
way black
dyed hair
blouse cape
& skirt
She pirouettes
on cliff edge
overlooking
glacial kettle
ponds in
Mt. Hope
Cemetery
choreographing
an artless dance
of death
