USA Dance Nationals in Haiku Form

By Kevin Viratyosin

Landed 10 p.m.
An unknown man picks us up,
and we did not die.

Morning silver cha:
music starts, break, cross turn, and
Karen’s on the floor.

Rhythm: straight finals—
it’s done before I notice,
but ribbons for all.

Danced smooth and standard—
quarter, semi, finals too
—guess that’s it for bronze.

Nic and Neli dance
standard pre-champ, champ all night:
pretty damn awesome.
