Robert Buck

I listen
to 10,000 Maniacs songs
in-between hours, and
you were constancy

of crystalline accompaniment
and precise guitar notes –
dominating but the raven-haired dervish
growing to womanhood in your view.

All men with bowties
should have a title bestowed on them.
All men with bowties and perverse literary leanings
should have a guitar thrown in their hands.
