Home from Home: Midway Pointe My dancer and Me by Sarah Jackson

Midway Pointe

My dancer and me

Still

behind barres my dancer

moves comfortably in familiar

space

 

She goes through the motions

thoughtless

numb

accurate

precise

 

Slowly

tentatively

just for a moment  

 

She takes my hands off the barre and

we move into a forgotten place where

I used to dance
