Ballet Slipper

A single one.
They are useful in twos.
Something you think is missing
really isn’t, but it stops you
from dancing.

Often the beginning of a dream
that causes anxiety
in the dreamer.

Backstage, she awaits
her solo but finds
only one slipper. In vain, she
implores, but no one
will help. Besides, she can’t

remember her role, or what
the dance is and no one
will help. She could improvise
but no dance is done
on a single point.

Time is short,
It all depends on her.

She awakes.
–only a dream!
Returns to joyous
renewal of sleep.

Meaning of a ballet slipper
in dream?
Dance on.
