Bows From The Last Dance

Ish Klein
Not enough left to make sure a swan stays

a swan until the end of the last act.



New strings need new arrangements, better bows,

a whole evening    you weren't dreaming.



A progression of swan to court lady

 requires a peasant girl in between.



Calculator, to me these things you show:



   a calculator requires a show



not a new lady dreaming between stays.
