Hear your steps

Posted: May 27, 2007 in Poems
Hear your steps,
in this unseen place
feet ringing on the stairs
in the deserted throat
of this ’30’s beast,
smacking the tread
pirouettes shatter tip toes
and echoes concrete despair
practicing clips and prances.
The sort of shoes
that have no cares
sound that cracks the air
and spellbinding footfall shared,
the clatter recedes
into the well of night
onto the club or pub
where feet will be paired,
beside my pillow I hear your steps.

what do you think?
