{February 4, 2011}   Blue Guitar

I thought for a change of pace I would post one of my old poems.  This poem was published (GASP) 20 years ago…Next week I will post another “Jane” vinette.


Silly blue inflatable guitar

you won at the fair,

slumps in my bedroom,

sighing and exhaling

a little more each day,

the farther away

our relationship becomes.

I think of throwing it away,

as I watch its neck

bending and hunching

like an old woman,

but I will wait until

the plastic flattens

to the floor,

blue and gasping.

There is no question

of reinflating it;

it doesn’t fit in,

in my bedroom.
