The Dance

I dance with the young woman in my small, local supermarket

Always elegant with her shining nails.

We shimmy around each other our distance metered

As she sets free my wine, 

Her looking calm, fabulous,

Me half crazed, unwashed,

Proving that self service is not something I can manage,

Not before, not now, and assumedly not ever.
