“Tango of Lies” by Richard Krawiec

she taught him to dance
lies, one hand teasing
his waist, the other
pressing shoulder
backwards towards an edge
she swore wasn’t that close
at first he plodded
she flashed a slink
of thigh inside a V
slit, her black skirt
clinging like fever
she shuffled a cunita
flourished a pasodoble
leaned in close, her smile
a blade he halted
with his warm eyes
peering in, arm snake-
writhing upwards
he snapped his fingers,
spun in a circle
she followed until
for both of them
all the others
all the strangers
blurred into kaleidoscope
