Evening Dress

I put on my evening dress
And went out for a casual stroll

The sidewalk grew perfectly flat
Tree roots subsided / cracks disappeared

Wheelchairs and strollers rolled smoothly
People began to dance

A little soft shoe / a little slide
Music came from everywhere

Measured was the music
And the hearts of the people were calm

As their bodies swayed into parallel lines
New line dances were invented

Every move was so smooth
All rhythm no blues

A steady beat to the music
Everyone finding a partner

They were on the same level
They looked directly into each other’s eyes

Everything was right
Everything was true

Until I ended my stroll
In my evening dress
