More often than not I am underwhelming

The Park's Embrace - The Old Guitarist Ekphrasis

More often than not I am

underwhelming

My neck hangs a boulder as I play,

Watching a boy in the park.

His arms wave as stalks against

A sky,

Draped delicately with rain

His mother chides him as she pulls

On another, more mouths to feed

I breathe out for him

Our steamed exhales mix

Over the backdrop of a

Melancholy sky

My fingers

Tug and are caught

Starkly white against the

Inside

Of my guitar

Strains of music long forgotten are

Spinning i

N the

Boy's

Chest

Watching him, I

Drop my hand and fall forward

More often than not I am

underwhelming

My neck lifts a boulder as I stop,

Watching a boy in the park.
