Slack-key Apostle




guitar fingers

A guitar in his hands
is an acoustic Pentecost.
Ten fingers turn to fifty
riding steel strings
riding harmonic glory train
through souls
on thrum of hammer-on
pull-off slides.

His fingers spit
cloven-tongued flames
anointing chords
igniting crowd
taking them on a journey
to an absence
a free-falling bliss
into an angelic orgy of notes.

  1. Life is about sex. Sex is about life. All things are about sex. Sex is about all things.
