Strumming For One

A catalogue of songs
to choose from
some span twenty five years

It has become such a tame affair
early gigs
dressing down

This audacious nature
plays it safe
edgier material banked for another gig

A pedestrian audience
seated and non-responsive
watching others for permission to clap

But there will be one spirited listener
each strum inspiring a little movement
a body eager to feel a rhythm

We will not meet afterwards
but she will guide me through twenty minutes
and I won't feel like I'm singing to dead air.

Certain gigs can be dull affairs. Call it positive thinking, perhaps.
