Her posture betrays her


She is listening intently to his words

standing close 

in a half piroutte, balancing on her left foot

as her right leg stretches behind her  


She is nervously 

combing her bangs out her eyes

rubbing her hands against her hips

trying to keep them occupied


She is waving at his hands

as he is talking with them 

sometimes touching his forearms

but just for a few seconds 


She is inching closer 

the longer the conversation lasts

moving her face below his chin

so he can see her expectant eyes, looking up 


Your posture betrayed you too

as I recall
