In Line Dance, Barbara Crooker embraces the world with open arms, in open celebration: "everyone I've ever loved/is here today, even the dead, raising a glass/and dancing.../bubbles rising/in a fluted glass, spilling out, running over." Even these graceful poems can scarcely contain the world's abundance. Line Dance is a sublime tonic against the darkness.
