Poem - he plays the guitar with his feet

for Mark

he plays the guitar with his feet
hammering out a song or strumming a ballad

and later the young girls who are drunk
laugh like it is christmas morning
sophistication forgotten and they dance

their boyfriends
get really pissed at the guy
who can play a guitar with his feet

crescent moon in the sky blues slide guitar
more drunk people enthralled
at his strumming that instrument
just with his toes


end of evening
bags in the car and amp in the back
he's off to santa monica tomorrow
but he might come back
in a month
