That Man Is There Again

That man is there again,
his guitar and fire, steady friends-
chords and crackling conversation;
he never plays a song I know,
words never rob his buddies show.
All the windows he//'//s seen through,
alone, with smiling fingers sing;
wistful looks at him through pains so clear,
as youth in stasis yawned and stirred,
drowning smiles, fighting tears
to join me who/'/s seen but never heard.

Yes. Smiling fingers sing. Beautiful imagery. I love when senses experience beyond their capacity. Like eyes smiling and the like

It/'/s arguably as beautiful and phantasmic in description here, as it is to the soul in life, as well as it is, a written existential painting if you will.(which chances are you won/'/t because you had- ha!

I/'/m impressed more so after reading this, as a pleasant after taste from a smokey lozenge, that has a mild flavor, but the aftertaste is like a dinner, or even dessert. :)

enchanting write

I thought, " wistful looks at him through pains (pangs that might show through) so clear"...

to join the resolute by all the surrounding clues/ somewhere inside --- I wonder not letting loose,
the reclusive style - wistful/dim, perhaps solemness
maybe slumber/ the long conditioned slumber like the edge of a cascading turbulent water/ perhaps an eddy

this really captivated my thought/ like a painting in nature brings with it all the 5 senses creating the sixth.

Thanks Invierno!

Peace!
