Universal Tango

Universal Tango

Two steps in the dance
of the Universal Tango
is me to we
and back again.

Born of immigrants
in this physical world
a visual representation
of homesickness
and a nostalgia
which longs to be back
where they came from.

A place where time is nonexistent,
which creates a strong thirst
for love and longing.

Clear lines
are drawn in the sand:

The physical steps of me
represent rhythm
clear, specific durations
masculinity: strength, and resolution.

The spiritual steps of we
represent melody
how each note responds
to what has been previously played
femininity: softness, and beauty.

Two opposites, intertwined
responding and reflecting each other
as they move together in time
creating a challenging,
yet pleasing
effect.
