“Crótalo
Crótalo
Crótalo”

– Federico Garcia Lorca

And step

one

pivot on the toe pause

red lips

wave of

the skirt and

then the eyes

lock

rose in fist

step right

circling the enemy,

the display

eyes full

of life and

the castanet

castanet

castanet:

oyster in the palm,

its applause

for the

dance.

And the guitar now

weeping for

La Mancha

and

step

two

three

four

and

one.

fingers twist smoke

into the air

but the castanet

castanet

castanet,

the pearl

Francesca Bianco
