Portrait of A Ballerina

Portrait of A Ballerina

written by: Eoghan Lyng



Starved of body, mind and soul,
Mind control, an image held,
Falls on you to bear.

Pirouettes, the suffragettes you
Left behind could blind
Themselves on a puttering rope.

Resplendently, respectfully, I ask
Routine, it seems, penance
You would only pay from art.

On an image stand, I hand,
To you the courageous walk
You had to dance.

Waxed, in tight set dress,
I confess, your vigour sweeps,
The glass cased chain.
