A Rich Substance

A Rich Substance

A Poem by BL

Something beautiful happens
When life overflows
Like the chance meeting
Of duelling banjos

You play the guitar
Much better than me
On your lonely nights
While I ran free

Then love finally turns up
Unsteady on the nerves
A flowing rich substance
More than anyone deserves

There's some hopefulness to this. Life is a gift no one really deserves, it's kind of what makes it so precious.
