a tired monk guitar maxim

1.0

guitar ready
steady in a stand
reach for it
even in a stolen moment
pound out a few fat
swinging chords

1.1

don't fret
over precision
and execution
play
just play

  11. one's execution will, at times, be off; then, just keep playing. good advice, for writing as well as guitar playing. love the title.

  12. Music is a letting go, as is poetry, and you captured it well, here.
