Blackout

 

 

 

On my bed lay
boxes of clothing.

spiral notebooks. videos. records. books.

and guitar,

once played
never tuned.
An empty bottle of merlot.
How many times did Dionysus
assemble a crocked cacophony
on his aulos
late at night
not knowing the rhythm to song.
I would like to think the guitar under the bed

has been played
just to cure worry.
