In ruched black I bounce,
Flashing fishnet cheeks clapping
To João’s samba beat.

Bent elbow to drum,
He riffed off my fierce spirit,
Primed to get him some.

Tango Shoes

A bandonéon

Zings through a square where once strolled

Evita Perón.


Demure smile, bold gaze —

He extends an upturned hand,

Sets her palm ablaze.


Pure Porteño heat

Melts into silk Nubian curves

Down La Boca’s streets.

Milonga Nights

Counterclockwise pairs

Elude despair on black ice

As midnight drags on.

Your first touch

Left me limp

Like dimpled clay

In the hands of a master

Commissioned by God,

Ready to play,

Fingers caressing,

Realigning the bones,

Slipping beneath straps,

Gliding down zippers,

A pro at undressing

My fear cloaked in drapes

And provoking tears to rain

Launched from a dark place,

Amid sighs and whimpers

Building to strident confessions

While my contorted face

Morphs between bliss and pain  –

These are my impressions of you.
