trapped in the frozen yoghurt

I walk into a frozen yoghurt shop, Snog
to be exact. Covent Garden’s Royal
Ballet School students sit. Perfectly
scraped-back, gelled hair. Sparkles
glow in the artificial light. I tug at my mother’s
hand. Black fleeces hide toned bodies, poised
just as they are in my dreams. My eyes are drawn
to the gold stitching across their chest. RBS. I
don't notice their furtive glances
at me. Teacher murmurs incoherently as my spinning head
deciphers nothing but dreams hidden in the
frozen yoghurt shop.
