Vince, I had no idea. Now I understand the poem. It's great. But watch the calluses on your hands.

I enjoyed your poem. In a short story I am shopping around, I have a man playing the bongos and tom-toms (I think) and smoking Cuban cigars. So I reacted to this poem. I think this is up to the writer to choose: you use the passive voice a lot. Like the word 'is.' This is great if you want to write in a conversational tone. For example, Active voice: 'Learning to play can amount to a noisy and painful undertaking./So request permission before starting.' But that's up to you. You may hear a rhythm in your head and want to keep it that way. Again, I appreciated it.
