Sample piece from Meeting Mona Lisa

Chassé

You are Dame Margot Fonteyn,
I, Rudolf Nureyev
as we embrace
a late-night-Radio Tango

through News and Weather Forecast
and ads urging us
to dress this way or that.
We wonder what they would have danced

When they were not dancing
The Nutcracker or others like
Swan Lake? A special request
Cha-Cha the Radio D J announces

slow-and-slow-and-quick-quick-slow we go;
Chassé slip sliding in the way
Margot and Rudi might have done
after a night out with us in The Swan.
