permanent, so get it right the first time.
Curse away your mistakes
- the wrong chord, an extra key, that acoustic buzz.
It doesn't take too terribly long.
Shake off the powerchords biting at your forearm muscles;
lick your deliciously sanguine fingertips;
clean the sweat off those keys!
Then all of a sudden
it's not that difficult anymore,
and you wonder how you even struggled in the first place.
Everything and everyone beckons to your bed,
but you can't sleep because that guitar shines so damn bright -
you can't let it leave your fingers,
not on the brink of perfection.
you say with a smile -
five minutes and forty-eight seconds
since you walked in the door
and played it perfect.
