When we were little
we'd make up dances
& practice all the steps over and over,
& perform them in the living room
for our dolls & our mommy & our dog,
wearing costumes picked out from
the trunk downstairs.
We still dance together
to songs we know all the words to,
but now we wear heels
& sometimes have drinks
& don't care about the steps so much.
It's hard to, when we're
trying to hold each other up
from all the laughing.
