A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


Poet on a String

 

 

 

let me stand next to your guitar

or embrace me with your nimble fingers

i can be any tune you want to play

THIS would be cupid at his best, I’m sure such talents do exist as do those professional dancers. Great sharp brevity.

the beat poets would kick such a puppet to the curb me thinks .. but it is a power of sorts isn't it .. to tantalize, titillate, move to tears of happiness
title hooked me ..three lines but such a complexity of characters and emotions for me to imagine .. a three line play says i!

Nimble fingers and a gentle touch do it every time.
I just wish I could play a tune for the perfect embrace.
Maybe just hum a tune, might work.

Four bloody strings, how hard can it be. Blame the big fingers myself.

Words, the main tune.
What a fun poem, very clever. Tuning optional.

A Poet On A String! That’s such an Irresistible offer! I’d lap it all up,
even if it was just a limited offer for Valentine’s Day! :)

Now there's a thought. What an invitation for Valentine's day for some dame. I have never met a man who would dance to my every tune. Do they really exist?

Love the title Jacob. Imagery great too. Excellent read.
