Twangy Guitar

lonesome tough
gritty growls
laconic as a bad ass movie star


women stare
all over him
he's got it down
a one man rat pack
on the make
'til the call of the road
takes over his soul

something he often regrets
but the lonesome tough
don't do duets

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


I once lost a woman to a jazz musician. Never listened to jazz since, except Dave Brubeck.

Sorry, can't offer critique, this is rough, tough and powerful,

A new workshop on the most important element of poetry-
'Rhythm and Meter in Poetry'

"cool", a favorite word of mine, don't know why, maybe its association with miles davis' cool jazz. sorry, didn't mean to scatch a sore spot! anyway, thanks for the read and generous comment.
p.s. Brubeck is WAY COOL!
