tuning the roygbiv – an instrument of strings and arcs

rainbow (2)
he turned
a little bit
the tuning peg

trying to set the red
into the arc

ran his fingers
across the string
to make it sound
the colour

another string
in orange time

arcing in the yellow

the green
the blue

indigo
so sensitive

a twist
a test
another turn

violet

violet

nestled in
and snug
below

he turned
a little bit
the tuning peg

then ran his fingers
across
the strings
