  • Colour

    Pearlised colours
    winter shimmers
    pale pinks and blues

    I guess I just felt free,
    elegant, happy, free.
    This is one of the times

    I felt I could express myself.
    My neck, my arms, graceful.
    It was the one time I didn’t care

    about being centre of attention.
    I was somewhere else. I was
    with other people with the same

    passion. I belonged.
    I still do it sometimes in the kitchen!
    I use the surface as a bar.

    I pirouette on the laminate.
    I’m euphoric
    I can lose myself

    in the music.
