Silver – stanza 22.3

“What about the twenty-third?”
“What is that, Sunday?”
“I think so, yes.”
“Let me see, here, Sunday, no, the Gala is Sunday.”
“The Gala?”
“Ballet. It’s a special event, not on the calendar.”
“I was going to say, I hadn’t heard.”
“It’s been hastily arranged. I don’t even know
Where I heard about it but you know James
Any excuse to wear a tuxedo.”
“Who’s dancing?”
“They’ve invited dancers from lots of companies
But really, no big names.”
“That seems a strange choice.”
“That’s only the beginning. The headline
Is some local girl, no one has ever heard
Of her.”
“The producer’s girlfriend?”
“That’s what I thought too. But I know
Elise at the studio she came from. So
I know people who know her and they
Don’t think there is any hanky-panky
The weird part is that some of the say
She is a terrible dancer, at least no where
Near good enough to headline a big show
While others assure me that she is divine
That they’ve never seen a better dancer.”
“Maybe she’s gotten over a hurdle.”
“Makes sense except she’s far too old.”
