Going for the Gold

Standard

Coming up for air
is the crowning glory
of my recital
and because of this,
I can rest my laurels
with my stash
of burning marble.

I haven’t ever
looked so beautiful
in painstaking
arrangements.
I blushed when I heard
everyone choke
on their stopwatches.

Pirouettes
and castanets abound.
Other sounds merged
into bigger sounds.
I chalked it up
to victory.
