    A Dancer's Life

    The lights in the theater fail. The long racks
    Of costumes abandoned by the other dancers
    Trouble Celeste. The conductor asks
    If she is sad because autumn is coming on,
    But when autumn comes she is merely pregnant and bored.
    On her way back from the holidays, a man
    Who appears to have no face rattles the door
    To her compartment. How disgusting, she thinks;
    How disgusting it always must be to grow old.
    Dusk falls, and a few drops of rain.
    On the train window trembles the blurred
    Reflection of her own transparent beauty,
    And through this, beautiful ruined cities passing,
    Dark forests, and people everywhere
    Pacing on lighted platforms, some
    Beating their children, some apparently dancing.
    The costumes of the dancers sway in the chill darkness.
    Now sinking into sleep is like sinking again
    Into the lake of her youth. Her parents
    Lean from the rail of a ferryboat waving, waving,
    As the boat glides farther out across the waves.
    No one, it seems, is meeting her at the station.
    The city is frozen. She warms herself
    In the pink and scented twilight of a bar.
    The waiter who serves her is young. She nods assent.
    The conversation dies in bed. Later,
    She hurries off to rehearsal. In the lobby,
    Dizzy still with the weight of her own body,
    She waits, surrounded by huge stills of herself
    And bright posters announcing events to come.
    Her life—she feels it closing about her now
    Like a small theater, empty, without lights. read more »

    At a Wedding

    Her feet beneath her petticoat
    Like little mice, stole in and out,
    As if they feared the light. read more »

    Indian Dancer

    EYES ravished with rapture, celestially panting, what passionate bosoms aflaming with fire
    Drink deep of the hush of the hyacinth heavens that glimmer around them in fountains of light;
    O wild and entrancing the strain of keen music that cleaveth the stars like a wail of desire,
    And beautiful dancers with houri-like faces bewitch the voluptuous watches of night. read more »

    Gratiana Dancing

    SHE beat the happy pavement--
    By such a star made firmament,

    Mask

    Fling your red scarf faster and faster, dancer.
    It is summer and the sun loves a million green leaves, masses of green.
    Your red scarf flashes across them calling and a-calling.
    The silk and flare of it is a great soprano leading a chorus read more »

    THE LADY in red, she in the chile con carne red,
    Brilliant as the shine of a pepper crimson in the summer sun,
    She behind a false-face, the much sought-after dancer, the most sought-after dancer of all in this masquerade, read more »
