Scheherazade music plays for the Gold-Medal Dancers
etching their story in ice.
And we are mesmerized,
sustained by the narrative’s spirals, sit-spins, & twizzles,
which is fitting,
since the original Scheherazade etched her future in the 1001 tales
she spun and twisted to keep herself alive,
just as Isabel Scheherazade is doing now with her sequential stories.*
Inspired by that master-story-catcher of them all.
