She listens to the world move
like old people listen to talk radio.
And flutters in her own world,
she programs an image to her brain:
Much like a ballet,
she falls when she fears the music is stopping.
[pressing her cheek against her knee]
Then valiantly she jumps and spins,
But eventually, all music ends;
fallen on the stage
