En pointe

Doubt
will not dampen this ground
under trembling feet;
flowers grow best in moist soil.

I thrive under pressure;
bloom words of beauty

with too many adjectives.

You can flip the neon sign
to closed,
believing I will turn around,
but, that spin is a pirouette
to my encore in this place

and these slippers
are dug in.
