i pull out all the cables and gear
that was once the trappings
of my nights singing
on local stages.
and i figure, really,
what harm can they do
other than blow a few amp tubes
which they have already managed?
what they’re doing
which is why it is such fun
watching them plug things in willy nilly.
strikes me how
great it would feel
if simply putting forth
your best effort at connecting
(this to that, & that to some other thing)
always resulted in success and loud applause.
