Tango Words

In Progress

Yesterday we danced
and now I try to trace
her again in words
and memories
instead of air

(held by her eyes then
stronger than
the frame of my arms)

reading these words aloud
to test their sound against
the silence I see
the candle flame
acknowledge her name
on my breath

and recall her breath
a moment on my cheek
