By
   The hum of soft conversation

fills the room.



On the stage

He sits with this guitar.

With tone thicker than

the smoke cloud in the air,

he bends the strings into the stratosphere,

pushing them sweet enough

to the point of breaking ... but they won't break.

For the moment he's laying low,

not playing his ace.



Teasing the crowd,

he listens to the silence between the notes.

He knows

that sometimes the best notes

are no notes at all.
