Alternate Realities

I make Miss Medlar proud:
a minute, 30 seconds
of straight arms, back,
perfect co-ordination of limbs,
taps to the Celtic beat of slow-reel.
Line up, head bowed,
hands clasped, then finger
the bronze disc, harp-embossed;
first prize in the Irish dancing
end of term sweepstakes.
