Tiny dancer

I’m a volunteer chippendale
doing it for the adrenaline,
doing it in the windows
between metre readings
and learning about tax.
I’m a volunteer chippendale.
It started out to Status Quo
then James Bond themes
and now nursery rhymes.
I like watching my skin
that at one stage didn’t know how
to use a tin opener or put socks on
make shapes that don’t have names,
doing it in the windows
of self esteem.
