"Mid-flow correction in alien territory"

30th December 2008

More poems

Do you ever have that?
There you are
Having to stop
Mid-tango dance
At a Modern Jive venue
To allow
A Modern Jive pair of 'dancers'
Not sure I can call them dancers mind
(Snotters!)
Who are going wild
Taking most of the floor up
Bereft of any dance floor etiquette
To get out of your space
So you can finish
The move you started

Yes
We all have to correct ourselves
For these people

But the question beggars answering
Just what are you doing
Doing tango
In a modern jive venue anyway
Hum?

Can't complain...
