Smooth With Curves - Poem by Frankie Renae

She dances smooth with curves
Or could it be the ocean
I never could tell them apart
Until the jazz steps set in
But he asks her not to
Politely, or so she seems
Maintains that her spirit’s smothered
And then the bad days set in

Baby, step back
Just a second
Look at your feet with me
Don’t hold your head so high
When you look at me
And remember where
We used to be
Baby moves on
Don’t step back
We know we’re left
Baby step right
Take a breath
Take a turn on your dime
And dance
Don’t do this dance with me

She his him smooth in schemes
With words on some small ocean
That stands gently waving between
Good days they’ve seen in motion
It doesn’t keep her hands
Off the lips that she’s used to
And another love stands smothered
He tells her with his own moves


She’s losing her breath with it
He sets the black guitar down
The walls and pillows turn lone’ blue
And the waves splash out the sound
Baby, she is sorry
If he grows deeper the ocean
So will she, the song’s never good
And she wipes salt from his eyes


And dance
Put your hands on me
Just dance
Put yourself on me
And dance
Splash your tears on me
Just rest
Spill your lips on me
Just dance
