A Broken String

A string stretched

Beyond the breaking point

Lays limp between nut and bridge


Rosary nearly perfect

Blemished near the neck

Imperfectly presented


A through high E

Keeping in touch

Tension holding on


Head resisting breaking, cracking

While even taunt pressure

Runs through the body


The sound hole, a mouth

Resonating with raw emotion

As rhythm and harmony ring true.
