A poem I wrote for Anj, whom I love dearly.
You Know The Guy?

Yes, his eyes
Are both tired
And very hungry
Like a fighter
Seeing the opening
Jabbing the chest

Yes, his fingers
Like musical wires
Birds sit on
His guitar strings
Can't hit the
Notes he sings

Yes, lips grin
Like smoking guns
Two rounds right
Through my memory
I see him
With eyes closed

Yes, his hair
Like holloween night
A skeleton plays
Song on bone
We sing the
Same song, forever
