2021 Winner

One Last Dance

Two lovers

Perform the swing,

Twirling their cotton clothing,

Adorned with matching ties

Moderating the wind,

Relev├ęd feet hover the ground,

Rhythm reflects,

As their toes keep tapping

Over time, their bodies grow stiff

Originating from their necks,

Then migrating below

Their speed decreases,

The tempo slows

As their final dance comes to a close
