La Tropilla de la Zurda

La Tropilla de la Zurda
Form: Free Verse
Theme: Identity
Subject: Tango

A figment of illusion
nothing more
like hobbits and orcs
he cannot be real
a character formed in imagination
a childish creation
they said
he can never be real
go with flow
dance in the swirling skirts
a step behind
he isn’t real
dance to break the soul
to join the broken heart
of never will be
this isn’t real
the pulse of the tango
in the depths of depression
comes the energy of nuevo
he is real
and he knows how to lead
