The Moral, Maybe

She agreed to dance with me
but I had nothing to say to her
and the sweat pouring off of me
was prodigious
so after the number was through
she walked off
without a word
and maybe
more than a pint of distaste.

You can be good at one thing
without it carrying over
at all
into other planes of possibility.
This is an important lesson
in dance
and maybe other things, too.
