restoration hardware (20181124)

let the lies
be truths
the ink blood
skin words
write yourself
write your grievances
on sheets
where the darkness
laid its head
and found
momentary peace

a single chord
works in all keys
your fingering’s right
but the string
still buzzes
frets are just headstones
hiding bones
let them find
momentary peace

i have momentarily
made peace
with weakness
cravenness  a close ally
shrugging my shoulders

    Stunning. I’m swooning! I should be the one calling you “Mother Superior.” 😍

  2. That next to last paragraph
    About the piano I believe it is..is stellar…so crow how’s the fires treating you I hope all is well always glad to see you….my friend from the left coast

    1. Sheldon, how are you? I’ve been gone from here for a while, and my output has slowed down considerably.

      Thank you for your kind words. That second stanza will work for any instrument with strings and frets.

      Luckily, I am nowhere near the flames. Well, not the physical ones.

      1. Hey crow we all slow down you just can’t stop…theres always an internal battle I am going through a great storm right now…great warriors never die we just keep moving from battle to battle

    1. Jane, thank you so much.

      I haven’t been around too much lately. Hopefully I will appear a little more often, now.
