This short piece with its ironic kick at the end is from the wonderful Issue #3 of The Mas Tequila Review, edited by DCF Sunday Poem regular Richard Vargas. If you need a gift, whether for yourself or someone else, check it out. It's a great read!
Mark Weber, the Thursday afternoon jazz deejay on KUNM, has been an icon of the Albuquerque poetry and jazz scenes for years.
VIOLINS FOR YOUR JOURNEY
As simple as it is
it can still be difficult, not easily
approachable, even as it
is transitory, there is glue
centrifugal, layers, complications
helicopters & philosophy
they spin you around like a pinata
aiming in the wrong direction
off you go
not much further, gather
a few more years and
you made it: the graveyard.
