wandering minstrel jug band.

July 18, 2017

Play on,
sad, little plucker
of despondent strings
trudging uphill
light-footed, heavy-hearted,
dragging mule and cart
and fool with coconuts
clacking.
Play on,
slow, incessant poet
of nimble grievances
leading the way
lungs full, flutes thick,
inspiring smoke and mirrors
of the burning city
below you.
