Chorus Line

When the girls come out

In red fishnet stockings

A motley drill team

Of mismatched legs

The curtain call

Brings forth their dim-lit days

In a room painted black

Three high kicks

One forced curtsy

The stage unfolds

Under theater lights

Playbill perfection

From February frost

To searing melted nights

Working girls in tights

Another season begins

In candy apple madness

Dancing girls all in a row

Ready…….  go!

Spotlights burn down upon

Their undulating steps

  1. As this unfolded, “When the girls come out / In red fishnet stockings / A motley drill team / Of mismatched legs / The curtain call / Brings forth their dim-lit days” I was picturing the 50-year reunion of a group of Rockettes, candy apple madness indeed! “Spotlights burning down” lent credence to that, alluding to the end of a long career as well as a final (or encore) performance. A fun read, Lana. 🙂

    • Yes, it could very well be applicable to a Rockets reunion. Maybe also alluding to the seamy side of show business where women tend to be exploited. This chorus line is definitely imperfect. Have a super weekend my friend!
