            Guitar Statue

             A dark grey, a very dark grey, quite dark it is almost black. This
             statue is a composition not for practice. Ordinarily, a guitar would
             stand in a better place, a better place where the strings are alive with
             every occasion. Solid and far from untidy, it rests on cobblestones,
             a reminder of cherished refrains, an exterior surrendering and not
             quite dreary in wind as there is so much of its shape working not to
             be ordinary, and not tardy. It’s a receptacle, a symbol, silent in its
             custom, but never silent when there’s anticipation, a lively concert
             with exceptional meaning and feeling from exuberant voices.
