You can fight you can dance, this he says as he slides in a knee tween my thighs 
Such promiscuous ways from a body adhesively taut, yet so subtle a take, as I  
Mold myself in, to a Tango of dance n’ delight!  
I fall into his hands then away, then again, 
Get away
Get away, then again, I am willing to bend 
Where he leads I will follow, face to face chest to chest, as we close the embrace 
I fall into his hands then away, then again, 
Get away 
Get away, then again, I am willing to bend
With the arch of my back and the fire within, I can fight I can dance, like cinder 
like fire   
With a Rose tucked away tween my breast, with a strum of a note in my heart, 
We will dance cheek to cheek, til our TANGO runs out…

    The late Pearl Bailey recorded a hit song titled "It Takes Two to Tango". There are many things you can do on your own, but the tango is something you can't do alone. Good write, Vie.
