She once danced as the Sugar Plum Fairy
but when she broke every toe in her foot
skiing down a forbidden boilerplate of ice
she became mired in unending melancholy.
She followed astrological projectins
and ouija board guidance to choose
one husband after another to no avail.
Alone as a prisoner in solitary confinement
she dances on one foot before a huge mirror
listening for an echo of resounding applause
while she lovingly pleasures herself to music.
