Now this is nice...

Poking around online, I found a really gorgeous Yusef Komunyakaa poem over on Ploughshares' website -- "Ode to the Guitar."

The plucked strings tremble
& traverse the heart,
back through that other
strong muscle singing blood
& guilt. ...

Go read the rest of it -- it's really lovely.
