songmaker

alone, early

open stage “tonite”

finding a chair

with other hopefuls

alone, watching

eating nothing now

buying a draft

so to appear cool

alone, shaking

groping his guitar

planning to try

a homemade number

alone, failing

ignored by talkers

standing, staring

bloody, and unbowed
