Musician in Concert This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

October 26, 2009
Trapped inside a stream of noise
Plastic smiles and pulsating veins
Swollen eardrums continue to absorb
What makes him who he is

The savory taste of blood and sweat
Of hopes and dreams and sound
Blistered hands and immense exhaustion
Are worth the brief euphoria

The piercing light upon his skin
Melts away a nervous mind
A striking conversation erupts
Between a finger and a string

The descriptive language of this poem elicits the true intensity between a musician and his artform. Each aspect of the human senses is graphically represented and well defined in this beautifully executed piece of writing. My compliments to its author!
