                                             Tiny Red Dress of Release



                    Tonight I am going to wear a red dress.
                    To celebrate.
                    I put big earings.
                    Red lipstick, black kohl eyeliner.

                    To dance again the tango with you.
                    Because I remember our last dance, of that night, when we looked from the window.
                    We dreamt of a future.



                    It was shattered by a black virus, a pandemic.
                    The tango of death.


                    And we closed our eyes.

                    To find that we are still here.
                    That its over.



                    Tonight, I  wear the same dress.
                    Because I am free from the grip of corona.
                    Do not sleep tonight, the night is getting clearer.
                    Lets dance tango and drink.
                    We are free ...
