this is not

 

this great evening of dancing and

so on 

leads to the grand

 

denouement   i become

entangled 

at the crucial moment   in

 

my t shirt   as i pull it

over

my head   all twisted arms and

 

bare belly   she laughs   

and

laughs until she cries   some things

 

are meant to be   others

are not

A wonderful use of spacing and an interesting moment captured. Such moments are what life is made of :)

This is a witty little piece, Lynn.

Our FT shrieks with laughter, remembering a man trapped in a navy jersey. That was a long time ago, but some things are memorable, like this poem :>)

Great story. So many "crucial moments" are spoiled this way. That's probably for the best. The ice has been shattered. Let's move on.

I like the moment that's been captured in it: the humorous story, the aura of evening, the denouement. Well written!
