Character Dance

Mary Macpherson

"Would you buy a car called Dingo Pop?" he asked.
She did a little character dance in her strong black shoes
raising a snowstorm of talc. Ben M checked out their groceries.
Krishna 15 drove them to the city, but Kamal 5 substituted
to take them home. Daniel sold them T-shirts, but as she entered
her PIN on flaccid keys, her stomach tightened. She detested
aged commerce – she was afraid her money would vanish
down the spiral cord. The whole glittery aisle did a T-shirt dance.
But Toni Perfect replied to her nervous query within
the required time and signed – Kind regards. It made her feel
faintly loved, then pitied, by a stranger.
