Offbeat

Offbeat

What is a tango for one,
sad music of a sad guitar?
What use are red high heels
when they no longer have partners?
The cobbled streets are lonely,
The shops are shuttered,
The cathedral bells are dull.
The violin repeats the tune
with more longing and more desire.
I walk slower now,
now that my partners
are gone.
