I’ll Stand Before the Lord of Song

The guitarist
stormed out of our band
claiming no woman
could understand “Hallelujah”

We played it anyway
in our own fashion
all high voices
and tinkly piano

It became a cliché later
but sometimes I still sing it
alone in my apartment
with no one at all to hear
