Dancing in two losetas
we named our slow-dancing ways
keeping the feet in two tiles
while slowly tipping one shoulder
to the side mano a mano
left and right rhythm and motion
with the boy I like

He’s so close to me
I can feel la clave in my heart
I can smell Aramis on his neck
whiff the smell of fear
running down the drops of sweat

I keep my hand on his shoulder
press my breast on his chest
His arm commands my spine
while I look for the future in his eyes

The song comes to an end
it’s time to separate
but music keeps the dream
twirling in my heart
