switching roles on the dance floor
you boy, me girl
this passion never dies
you're leading man, or shall i lead?
can we have this dance?
stepping on each other's toes
in character shoes of satin steel
we are forever interesting
unpredictable un-stormy weather
we say 'sparkles' instead of 'sh!t'
in our Latin American infatuation
author's note: inspiration from dance module in school. we're doing the mambo now, and our teacher Miss Amy makes us learn both genders' parts (yes, i'm from a girls' school) and her catchphrase is "Ladies! Don't say sh!t! Say sparkles!" when we cause our little accidents. many to thanks to frisson rae, my oh-so-unfortunate dance partner.
