"Ode To My Guitar"
William W. Harris
Orgasms should be this pure. Your
soft maple neck, holding the same
fingers that hold you. The way light
shimmers off your glittering body
when I swing you in my arms. My
digits slide up and down your
strings, stopping at frets only long
enough to make you sing or scream.
