The man called "duo improv on stage and duet act in the wings"
And I thought my heart had grew wings,
Just to fly straight up out of my chest
And to flutter around the velvet curtains and glimmering table.
So I got up
And I had trouble manuvering out of the rows of legs legs bag legs trophy legs legs bag
I kept wobbling on my heels
I had to catch up to my heart.
Down the stairs I went, thinking to myself don't fall head up don't fall don't fall
And it was a miracle, because I didn't
And the boy near the stairs reached for my hand, and I shook it, and he grabbed it
And we, a chain of beings, held hands
The man called "duet acting on stage, and duo interp in the wings"
And I let go of that boy's hand, and I held my skirt up and that hand got so sweaty
And I breached the stage and walked across it
And all eyes were on me
And the lights were so bright
And I couldn't see so my eyes floated all over
And the man called my name
So I stepped forward and accepted the whispered "congratulations"
And I didn't fall on the way down either
