Echos in the Tunnels


 
And so I pulled out my heart
and strummed
sending melancholy minor chords
echoing through the tunnels
 
Sorrow becomes song
regret a refrain
heartache a symphony
lifted and rejoiced
the deep finds beauty
in dark
broken
things  
 
Dwellers cock their ears
a tune not unfamiliar
cannot place a finger
but try to hum along
my vibrations resonate
and hit home (occasionally)
 
Dreamers harmonize
lovelorns sympathize
ragehounds bark “keep it down!”
erotics grab and pull at their dicks
writhing nymphs stroke
the red notes
embedded
in the
blues
 
I love them all.

You saw me yesterday
a sidewalk passing  
thought I was dead in the eyes
They were--I am
I don’t live there anymore
I don’t live there
I
don’t
live
|||||||||||||||||||||
 
Under the surface (of the earth)
Lives a man of lust, love, and passion
a poet
perhaps charming, a flirt?
 
Behind a mask of anonymity
with ink of brutal honesty
I share my deepest poetry
with under'grounded royalty
 
My Lords and Ladies
and Beautiful Creatures Undefined
I bow humbly
 
Coda completed
instrument placed
back in its case
I slowly ascend
again to
choke
in
the
smog
