Whimper and Wail

Standard

Tickin’ and slidin’
Vibrato strings,
Hardened fingertips
Slow and wanting blues
With tight strums
And runs …
 
Fill your head with
Wishy-washy slosh
Swayin’ and a-swingin’
With the rhythm
Of a-chuggin’
 
Find your slur,
Whimpers
Into Words
Quicken
Into Breath
Out again,
LOUD!
 
LOUDER!
Condemning
That pain
Under closed eyes
Willing to

Let

It

Go …
 
Stomp and fury
Beats, beatin’
Sweat, dripped
And lyric poised
From deep …

A
WAIL

Of finished
Deceit.
