The Last Dance

Your lecherous eyes bore through
These veils,
Don't think your recent elevated status
Will make me drop my defences
Or these veils...
But tonight I need to forget,
I need to forget
Your eyes that violate me.
I need to believe for once
My frozen feet and stiff body
Are capable of motion.
Tonight I will dance,
I will dance
My last dance
Before I offer my head on a platter.
I, Salome, shed my veils
And prepare for the sacrifice.

Someone's staging Oscar Wilde's "Salome" at Indigo in Bombay - wish we could be there! :(
