(A response to Picky picky)

For me, I want to dance with them.
(This doesn't have to rhyme, right?)
Practicing with ladies who hold you to account is all well and good.

But dancing is dancing.

The other night a beginner fresh from her first lesson reminded me what is to dance tango.
It was probably mostly wrong.
A critique of my technique would have been lengthy indeed.

But it felt like we were dancing on air
And I'm not willing to give that up.

(Um, it wasn't a rhetorical question was it?)
