Rythmic

We stood on top

of counter tops

Dancing

To a backdrop

of pop

and hip hop

Before they came in

watching

in backdrops of silence

As if we were

some sort of science

they had a licence

to take apart.

As if we

we needed

to stay

in their silence

;

When that’s all we

ever

danced away from

,

in backdrops

of silence

and watching counter tops.
