First Line: Call the illusion what you will
Last Line: Stooping to a penny.
Subject(s): Guitars; Moon; Singing & Singers; Songs

Call the illusion what you will,
people the balcony
with the leaning, beckoning masks
of your own lunacy:
tune your guitar to these,
bringing your heart to woo your head,
a struggling mood reaching clear to art;
and don't listen to neighbors applauding;
or see the moon come tossing
a copper ring:
for a man may lose his song
stooping to a penny.
