My Cruel Temptress

Just when I thought I was making some progress with tango, I have a night like this past weekend. I was at a milonga & my timing was off, I bumped into 3 people during one song (I never bump into people!), and I couldn't feel the music to save my life. And here I thought La Sonrisa was smiling at me so sweetly. But now I don't know...I'm taking a closer look at her and starting to see the faint traces of a cruel smile. How did I miss that before...was she teasing me the whole time? My temptress had me thinking I could catch her, but as I lean forward to embrace her, La Sonrisa only tauntingly laughs. She dismissively whispers in my ear "you won't ever hold me--how silly of you to even try!"
