GRONINGEN GUITARS

















Oh the groaning

of Groningen guitars,

the twang

of its gutters

and bars.

Rolling of memory,

filling up dreams

of canals

cracking with ice.

Gestapo days

and dead poets

swimming

in music;

the roaring days,

the roaring boys

and gorgeous girls

strummed away,

dancing

out of my eyes

into graveyards

of songs sung.

Spilt notes

and words

weeping for forgiveness

and joy.
