Dancing Princess Turns Into Stone Queen -- Part 3.

3.

The dances are wild. The old soldier

Gapes under his cloak.

The twelve princesses untie their long

Hair, they untie their corsets, drop them

To the floor. They dance in their sleeveless

Shirts; their feet – in the dancing shoes –

Twirl and jump in ecstasy.

They heave, sigh, laugh and cry,

They cleave to their princes all night.

The music intoxicates, propels the dance

Forward to the brink of madness.

No musician is to be seen. Yet, the music

Plays on and on.
