Music of Scars

a poetic confidant … NaPoWriMo

Poesy plus Polemics

"Stoic" Painting by Kim Roberti From “Stoic”
Painting by Kim Roberti

your voice is like whiskey
poured through gravel
and hardship
it teaches us something
that song without stones
of an age can’t deliver

your music of scars
moves on chords
built from pain
long suffering sounds
we’d give our last heartbeat
to sing even once

your implausible poise
plays a plaintive arpeggio
climbing the sequence
of notes that express
the best senses of
wounded humanity
