I’m going to Wichita . . . oops…wrong song.
Flash. Flash. FLASH!
Words Melt into Snow
The snow doesn’t let up. As if I needed a reminder of how chilled I am.
There’s an old, old song about a guitar being a friend. Mine isn’t now. It betrays me with each mis-struck chord, each jarring pluck of strings, as I try to write in this drafty attic room, missing her, knowing I betrayed.
Pride fails to warm.
It’s been months.
Wind howls. In its voice, I hear the plaintive cry, mine, of all the words I should have said, didn’t, how they fall now from my lips, disappear into the blanketing snow as if they’d never crossed my mind.

Video not working my end, so now I’m curious, what song did you team with the repentant asses whine
