Drums
Dancer's heartbeat
pound
pound
pound
to the rhythm of his feet
Flute
Player's voice
sing
sing
sing
to the music of her breath
Drums
Flute
working together
to
destroy
the other
always
rising
higher
louder
faster
stronger
until
finally
they break free
feet still
music quiets
dance ends
and
there
is only
silence.

There is always silence before the music - and after.
