Ode To An Instrument

Poem By Patrick Tolan

Like lost lovers
We touch for the first time in what seems like an age
You and I together, we were made for the stage
Unzip the bag, let you out your cage
Strings are too loose, leaves me in a rage
I hold you in my arms, a beautiful sight
As one, we’ll rock some souls tonight!
“Oh not again” a string is too tight
If I can get you in tune then we just might…
Nothing amazing but the melody is astounding
Upon each fret I am caressing not pounding
A once departed crowd, is now surrounding

I love you my friend, of wood and metal
I love your neck, your head, body and pedal
And not 145 words can say it all
To put you away is still painful
‘Till the next time, my lifeless, loving, lamenting

Lost in time and space
Lost in your warm embrace

Evil Lurks

Every Evil Effect Ends
Violently Viscous, Viciously Violent
Initiative Interrupts Its Ideal Implementation
Lavishly Lurking, Law Loses Love


Tuneful, cheerful, habitats of spring
All the new life and nursery that they bring
Blue tits that scramble, dance, and sing
Winter, a distant, reminiscent sting

No Loss To Gain

No loss to gain
No sadness felt
Or rather its
Forgotten the pits


i miss you like, i've lost my sight
insides too dark, outside, too bright
i miss you like, my chest feels tight
if we could arrange, tonight we might


Goodbye to the poetry
Farewell to the bards
Adios to the Good Questions
And to the deck of cards
