Day 10: 1970s Arena Rock Love

She had a voice
like Peter Frampton’s guitar,

And a voice like Peter’s guitar could fill
a boy's skinny chest with wah wah & blues.

So, Peter, holding her like your guitar
that night in the empty high school gym

I lifted her delicate neck
and whispered “Show me the way”

And sang to her about how hard
it is to love anyone

When no one applauds or lifts
a lighter to the sky.

I like this one. But I have a fondness for 70s rock in general.
