Kenneth Pobo

Sad Guitar


Our friend Jose told me
love drove him

It’s true.

He lives in our cupboard
behind tea cups,
plays a sad guitar
that cracks
the butter dish,
shards among
mouse turds.




KENNETH POBO has a new book forthcoming in May from Circling Rivers called Loplop in a Red City.  Also forthcoming from Encircle Press is a chapbook called Calligraphy With Ball.  He teaches creative writing and English at Widener University in Pennsylvania.  He is a minor authority on Tommy James and the Shondells and loves to garden.
