"Ode To My Guitar"

written by

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.
