Kitchen Dance

Two steps to the left,
arm up.
Pause.
Two steps to the right,
arm down.
Pause.
Twirl to the left again.
This time, it's a curtsy
as I bend to open the freezer.

I pause, grab the cargo,
and without thinking,
its back to the left
with one foot
then the other. 
My other arm extends
and finds something else
that's needed.
Another twirl,
perhaps a pirouette

The steps of this kitchen dance
aren't pretty or alluring.
More function than fancy.
Nancy, the dance teacher,
would not approve.
