Ballet

I saw the Nutcracker

in London at six.

Now twenty-one,

sitting again in a theater,

New York this time—

awaiting Sleeping Beauty,

I find myself

that child of six,

beside my mother,

eyes and heart full of wonder,

                                                             lost within the story,                                                                mesmerized by tulle tutus,

satin ribbons, music, and magic,

the spell cast;

I am hypnotized.
