Listed below are links to weblogs that reference On the Tango and Buenos Aires [by Mong-Lan]:


Reading Mong Lan's blog, found myself trying to analyze some of the words, trying to find a clear understanding of her ideas and experiences of Tango in Buenos Aires. Then, after a couple reads, I realized how the key to fully grasp the richness of this blog, one must also understand how a Poet like Mong Lan writes. Words come alive and interact with each other playfully. I can see now how the meaning evolves with the playing of the words to express what she feels when writing about each element of what Tango in Buenos Aires is and represents for her. It is rather refreshing to read a blog that does not merely defines or describes. But also, found that we (the reader) must understand where the writer is coming from as he or she expresses on a blog to fully grasp her intended message.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
