all the sweet relief guitar lulls i can pull

by blake ellington larson

won’t make a vagabond out of these iron strings

no
i am construed on captivated crooning’s
flush with the floor
drunk on pitch and purr

i am focused on making old hands
out of these new chants

and the song sings itself:

sweet sweet
clean clean rug
safe as home
just needs a tug

(2007)
