A Contra Dance in Chicago

We twirl in perpetual motion

dipping and spinning,

skirts splaying

out and up to worship

the softly glimmering chandeliers.

The music floats on gossamer threads

spun from viola and guitar

so people become beautiful

and maybe even holy

wrapped with this glittering night.
