Show me how it’s done

I don’t know much
about ballroom dancing
but, as I understand it,
you have one person who leads
and another person who follows.
If it takes two to tango
but only one’s in charge,
I’d like to be the one who follows.
I want to let my leader free
and see the shapes they invent
and the space they fill
and let them paint
the example I desperately need
across a well-polished floor.
