Tango is- by Juan M.S

Tango is

no mambo on two,

or frantic frenzy

of a salsa night.

Tango is

no thrill of ecstatic feet,

sightly set of figures

or deaf show of skills.

Tango is

the closeness,

the embrace,

the symphony of two bodies.

Tango is raw,


too eager

and too impatient

to be taught in schools,

to be danced on stages.

Tango is

everything but a dance.
