Seeking harmony

The “you” that is you,
or may be you,
and the “I” that I am,
or could be
are mere instruments,
fiddles without bows,
waiting for fingers
to caress and pluck
our strings
and make us sing.

~ Joseph Farley

Joseph Farley edited Axe Factory for nearly a quarter century. His books include Suckers, For the Birds, and Longing for the Mother Tongue. His poems have appeared recently in Pigeon Bike, Ygdrasil, Out of Our, and Sketchbook.
