—by Laurie Hoffman

angels dancing
on the head of a pin
one step
forces another
silver surface
delicate feet
we watch
eyes held by amazement or
hope of mischance
toe dance shoes
add instability
probability unknown
and now the angels
take their bow
will it be final
or end in an arc of glory?
look there on the left
a bit of a wobble
and we wonder
which will be
the first to fall.
