¡¡¡ DIEGO ARMANDO MARADONA: GRACIAS PARA LA MUSICA !!!

SLIGHT OF TURN

Tango’s blades cut and spun

and wove a ballet from a run;

carving space with glancing loops

that shimmered for the frozen duped:

he sped and balanced, jinked and slid —

and sped again; and paused, amid

enchanted knowledge of the orb,

with shocks and bumps at once absorbed;

with melting strides which slid to hide 

the rolling thread; which turned inside 

and stopped – alive – then flicked,

and floated, leapt and kept, the charge,

once more to stretch, adept,

and hook and fall –

and check, 

and score:

a beating portrait, ever more,

to ring as myth of ray-burnt lore.

Para Diego Maradona y Cristina Kirchner de Fernandez
