With perfect poise
he enters stage left,
placing the suitcase aside,

while gymnasts perform
pirouettes and arabesques,
svelte nymph
unfurls, spreads chrysalis-like
from case cocoon,

tumbling, twisting, wheeling
silken ribbon blazing
from baton waving
abstract fluidity
across blank canvas

to end again
repackaged and recycled
to perform anew
