You like potato and I like potahto, You like tomato and I like tomahto
Potato, potahto, Tomato, tomahto, Let's call the whole thing off.
--- "Let's call the whole thing off!" by George Gershwin
You like salon, and I like apilado.
You like nuevo, and I like traditional.
You like ganchos, and I like cunitas.
So we meet in the middle. You come a little closer, and I stand a little straighter. We dance. We turn. My temple rests against your jaw. I step through your ocho cortado and feel it coming - you lead the gancho. I follow it. This time without hesitation.
Through my lowered lashes, I see you smile.
I smile back.
And I think, 'okay, I'll say potato with you.'
