A Tango dance poem; a man and a woman meet to perform.

.........
Their glances follow the other's segue;
sharp! an adelante-forward right paso,
.........

ABRAZO
(Tango)

"Bailamos?.." he asked, "l' arrabalero",
a rough dance in manners and in dress,
Un cambio de frente-forth in tanquero,
while tempestous she raged a molinete.

Their glances follow the other's segue;
sharp! an adelante-forward right paso,
with un boleo-step in, whipping his leg,
codigo of compas-beat and contrapaso.

She answers with her hanging-colgada,
her wrath exhaling nostrils in caminar,
cadenzia plays a seduction-castigada,
she leans atras-backwards afore alzar.

His sudden turn in direction-quebrada
his figure straight, de passion caminar,
she followed mounting his leg-sentada,
repentant steps-arrepentida in bailar.

Honorable codigo in dauntless colgada,
his right leg within hers in una vibora,
Vals back and forth moves in a sacada,
de cabeceo apropiado par' una senora.

They dance in un reverberante abrazo,
conform step sequence of baldosa floor,
stamp-zapatazo of her foot-to Latigazo
para seguir the embellishment del amor.
