Keep to the beat

Object to be Destroyed by Man Ray
Prompt by Tess Kinkaid

Keep to the beat

Set by others
or animate objects
waltz time
or funeral dirge.

No rests
just tick tick tick
march tempo
or tango.

Make it march
I bowed to my partner
and exited
the floor.

I think I will sit this one out.

  3. I like the contrast between dancing and suddenly stopping. Some decisions must be made fast... or we might lose footing...
