Tango Words

Tango Dreams


The only way to make
love or anything else
worthwhile is
without caution

Feeling the drums in my blood
for a moment it seems
I can see who you are
hoping you may
tell me of your journeys
and of the shadows and forms
which are part of your songs
and the indistinct beginnings
of changes
in a moment of
rhythms and counter-rhythms
to create the dreams
caught in your moving

Wanting to be there
the way lovers
create each other’s universes
in dances and games
of intricate enchantment
to celebrate
the messages coming in still
being close to you
or my hand on you
as we may slip into sleep
keeping a joy singing
within us
