My daughter is twelve when they ask her to dance
in the opening scene, the one with the Christmas tree

filling the stage with dreams of sugar plum
faeries and toy soldier armies. It’s the scene

with the children, ribbons streaming through raven
and golden hair, lips curving into perfect bows,

brows shining like the sheen on satin wrappings,
and around the tree gifts piled like snowdrifts,

scattered like rose petals, the soft white lights
of the mother and father flickering in the evening

air. The ballet is two months away when my
daughter says, Please, Dad. We need someone

to be the father. Just for a few weeks. Just.
