That Wednesday thing

..and so
you try to dive in
to get a living
only to find
that the pool’s been
pumped dry.

trying must be nine points of the flaw.

Just guessing,
but
thinking that we’re all rough cut
stones,
shaking our bones
getting a move on
putting the polish on
as we go.

The air guitar
is much better by far
no one to say
that the notes which you play
are wrong
and everyone gets a chance
to play along.
