Tang … a sting. Tangelo … a fruit produced by crossing a tangerine with a grapefruit. Tangent … touching a curved surface at one point, but not intersecting with it. Tangerine … a reddish yellow orange. Tangible … that which can be felt or touched. Tangle … to catch in a snare, to trap, make a snarl of, to become tangled. Tango … a South American dance with long gliding steps.
Leading up to the tango you feel the sting like that of the fruit of passion. It’s bitter sweet in your mouth, like a tangelo. Then you’re off on a tangent, touching, yet not intersecting. You’re wearing reddish yellow, looking rather like a tangerine. You’re tangible in that you can be touched. Then, before you know it, you’re in a tangle, a trap. You’re dancing the tango! Moving across the floor in 2/4 time, gliding. Cheek to cheek, you can’t believe it because you’re here with the “one that got away”!
