"Dance Critic Cut"

Dance Critic Cut
Dismissed, in a retrograde move.
Fall without recovery.
Dance is a mirror–– 
pointing to motifs.
Choreographies grapple
with headlines, staged and restaged.
The Washington Post disposing
of a vital limb of its body.
Out of step, out of steps.
The wrong tempo, the worst time.
Neurons of narratives quelled.
A paper without poise.
*December 1, 2022, “Washington Post lays off Pulitzer-winning dance critic in spate of cuts“
