“Know Notes Aloud” – Song By: Ronnie and Heather Whitley Gibson

Maybe we’re here, for a reason or not.
Nothing keyed, a breath taken
anchored to create, seat belts denied
rear view backseat driven ride

uncooked and cast, four strings plucked at last
medicine tokens, a bass guitar lick
money tucked in-the wallet of time
tuning proclaims know notes aloud

chess boards fell neatly pieces meet love
playing muttered muddy water songs
dances become plays, plays become dances

blues crowds faded, creeks begin croaking
despair dated, the fretboard floating
the neck bowed, straightened on rosewood
tuning proclaims know notes aloud

a world understood, stood understood
sweat pouring pouring-piano rained
tickled ivory keys looking arranged

a dive so deep, one polish kiss
pride changed the rules, the sun re-aligned
a swollen peace, flirting confined
c clef that says know notes aloud

blues crowds faded, creeks begin croaking
despair dated, the fretboard floating
the neck bowed, straightened on rosewood
tuning proclaims know note aloud

    “blues crowds faded, creeks begin croaking”–repeating this line just enough is very effective in “carrying” this song. Excellent distillation of lyrics from your poem, Heather.
