doldrum

I wrote for a band for a while
vocalised my poems
to a steady background
of loud guitars
discordant sounds
it was great to be out there
giving words
the band never heard a lyric
though they got tattoos
which reflected ideas given out
then other people got invited in
this is george
he’s a tambourine man
& rosie who also writes
the band began to meet
on days I couldn’t do
another gig came to end
sometimes rejection slips
seem like love letters
