IX. Between

by Ahren Warner

The barre and the grand battement en cloche,
                 the en dedans
and the en dehors of last night’s night-off
                 fuckathon –

her room at the Grand Hotel, the première
and me (mere sujet) grinding through first
                 to fifth

and on to two positions in which she led,
myself having studied – under or on top of –
                 J.G. Noverre.
