Poem: Girl Playing Music in the Alley

The melancholy chords 
Of a lone guitar echo
Down an empty corridor
Strummed by a girl sitting
On an old stoop surrounded
By the garbage of the street
Playing beautiful sadness
Notes enveloped in tears
Carrying pain on vibrations
Of sound waves striking
A chord in the hearts
Of those who could hear
Turning a deaf ear to walk
Away from the sadness
Before they joined her in a
Weeping chorus of shared
Pain and anguish resonating
In the musical narratives
She wrapped herself in
