Out of Tune

I dropped a pill
on a guitar
string.

it rang dull
and perfect C.

I picked it up
and played a bit
the metal ran like
jazz beneath my fingers
and flowed

with
the melody
of laceless pranksters
on a halloween
night.

I put it down
and wait a while,
then strum
D7maj—
it sounds alright;
the cat meows,
she ate my pill.

Madness and Bolts of Silk. She likes late night walks and 90’s music. She can be found
sleeping in class or walking aimlessly in her college campus.

walking past the grey

how i sometimes
am fullfilled by curvature
the lack of your simple story
groaning like sorry
states and mansions,
the spilling traffic of
life
and the existance of
gasping girls, the ones
who will never be
you
the ones who are
never trouble,
you are running red
for miles, winged
by the anger of tragedies
they whisper, you pass
untouched
