Guitars and Players
In spaces confined.
Music created by touch,
Movements of air,
Vibrations gliding past in time.
Two bodies aligned in the concert of ancient Rhythms
Fingers pressing, moving
swiftly stroking rippling
Energy concentrated into points defined
by lines of sinew, sensuously drawn.
She who dances in response
laid upon his lap curved, open
touched deliberately, determinedly,
to create response.
Passion with single-minded focus.
Passion and violence
Knotted in pain
Give dissonance and harmony.
She howls in a harmony of protest
Lust, plaintive, demanding.
Blue wailing into the night.
To John Holenko and Kent Duchaine, who moved me with their playing in two separate concerts on February 17, 1992.
