By
   Slinky pale bodies

Whirling 'round the ballroom

Would you like to dance

One long, slow, swaying dance?

Suck in your whisper breath

Wait for the time when

(Though she hangs her wrists

Around your slender neck)

You discover she will never

Press her lips to yours

But quietly smooth

Wrinkles from a dress

In mockery of the wedding gown

You'll never see her wear
