Poetry by Alexander P. Garza

Guitar


Oh, winged instrument,

how you’ve always captured


my heart into each string.

The six strings implode


into you like a black hole,


the magnificence of

the harmonic sinew


stretching out along your

mahogany body. The wooden


strands stand as bones to

your whole and your songs,


so beat on, sing on

moons and comets and


send stars into spinning

frenzies until they collide


and spool into supernovas,

one star map to another.
