Assaulting the Quiet

28 Feb

The coffee shop is empty now,

patrons have all gone home.

The musicians have loaded out,

their echoes follow.


I turn off the lights,

the work is done.

I pick up my guitar and feel it’s energy,

waiting, frustrated by unmet expectation.


There’s so much beauty inside it,

but I’m not to be the channel for it’s release.

I gently put it back in it’s stand,

and lock the door behind me.
