Inspiration and Energy

Inspiration and Energy

In my house, in almost every
room there are instruments:
guitars, bongos, a xylophone
and more ready to be picked up,
held and played anytime
the mood strikes me.

In my first apartment
I taped up poems
that I had written
interspersed with poems
and songs written by others,
giving creative energy
to my tiny space.

When I was young,
so many times I would fall
asleep to my dad and his friends
playing guitars; their music
flowed through the vents
and into my room,
rocking me to sleep.
