Did She Ever Learn How To Play The Guitar?

I flashback —
a moment in time where you share,
“I always wanted to play the guitar
but my fingers are too short and fat.”
I looked at you,
wanted you to see what I saw,
to know what I know —
every inch of you
is a love ballad
& your breaths, a song.
guitar, be damned.

Author’s Note: This piece was a response to a Twitter prompt — the word to use: “guitar.” It brought back the memory of a woman I loved who failed to learn how to play the guitar because she was often told her fingers were too short and fat. I wonder, truly wonder, if she ever learned to play.
