Poem: Gypsy Dancing in the Office

Gypsy Dancing in the Office

You sit in your suit and tie,
a familiar calmness to your stance
as the day's chaos swirls
like a cruel summer's storm, while

inside you the wild drums
of gypsy song beats,
and your closed eyes put aside the madness
with dance, wonderful dance,

and in your mind you see
the swirl of emerald green skirts
and graceful arms asway with rhythm

and all who see you wonder
at the gentle smile you wear
in the face of peril.
