Damn Fingers~

Damn Fingers

Damn fingers want to make music…
too old,
too tentative,
too set in their lumbering, clumsy ways
to find the strings
to make the chords hum instead of buzz.

Damn fingers
Want to find the way into the music
Without learning the root causes for the sounds
That make rhythms,
Pleasant dancing rhythms.

Downtrodden guitar
unsure of its own destiny.

Or perhaps, it’s the damn ears?
