Tango #92

I walk the aisles
step, shift, collect
smooth pivot the corners
around the produce section
delicate little "rulos" as I inspect
the cherries
using the floor to press down to come up
and free my other leg
as I reach
for the peaches
movements so invisibly small
only for me
only to feel it
this dance between me, the floor and gravity
the music in my breath and heartbeat
saturday afternoon grocery store tango
anticipating the milonga tonight
and my red shoes
