Poetic dance

Some poets learn the steps
of a familiar routine,
keeping the rhythm,
hitting every beat.

Some poets know many dances,
utilising their unique flavour,
skillfully adapting,
until the music ends.

Some poets express themselves,
free from restraints,
their individual choreography 
resulting in surprising outcomes.
