Telecaster Grimoire

Within every rock cliche
is a fresh spring
waiting to be released —

that open D turnaround
we’ve all Heard forty thousand times,
the Chuck-riffs done to death,
the pentatonic lockbox…
did you forget all were designed
as magic spells? Don’t blame

the Weak impact
they have upon you
on anything but the weak magicians
who weakly cast them.  

Last night I heard a master
play everything right out of
the text book of how not to do it,
yet it wrung me out like a rag
sopping sweat from some ancestor’s 
forehead between sets, and now I long

to stay home from daily life
and sit over the grimoire 
of my Telecaster
through as many midnights
as I have left in the hope
of getting beyond
just getting it right

once in my life.
