spent playing the guitar,
<font color=darkviolet>The air between us is taut
as a bow strung
ready to fire

When I have something I’d like to mention.

<font color=darkviolet>I am an artist,
but I’m not a painter.
I’m not one who makes a canvas beautiful,

and I’ve been waiting to do it in person.
So I think I should say it now,
‘ case things between us should ever worsen.
