Maven

It’s all about captivation
it’s all about death
it’s all about mastery,
it’s all about unrest
it’s the execution
of the ballerina,
it’s the execution
I can’t forget
her swift
agility
and
proficiency
of feet
pointe
left
the first stance
and
the first glance
the pointe shoes
making indelible marks
on the wooden brazed stage
her pointe shoes
making indelible marks
on my wooden brazed heart
pointe
left
float
she motions
she floats
through the air
she motions
she floats
through my eyes
it’s all about her execution
it’s all about unrest
but it’s all too uncertain
if she had the mastery,
why did she choose death
