chagall backdrop
A slow dance,
Friday night,
hands on hands,
thigh to thigh,
shadow me,
as I slide,
to the left,
stutter-step,
reverse right,
you got it,
feel the beat,
hold the sway,
rock the hips,
shoulder pops,
small circles,
tight rhythm,
subtle rhyme,
you whisper,
Portuguese
in my ear,
in our veins,
on the floor.
