Park Statue of a Unnamed Civil War Soldier

I’ve been challenging myself to write outside of my comfort zone. Here’s an example. My goal here? Who knows? Maybe I simply wanted to explore a possibility. Dance!!

Park Statue of an Unnamed Civil War Soldier

Each night, of course, the mice
that dart across the courtyard,
searching for crumbs

dropped by the tourists
as they bit into their sandwiches,
pause when you open your eyes,

as your brow crinkles
into a stern furrow. They wonder –
will you step away

from your podium
and dance, finally dance.
