An unconnected string

About a year ago, I tried to write a poem about a guitar-string bracelet.

Here's what arrived in today's mail. It's from a company called WearYourMusic. This one is made from a string played by Richard Thompson on his "1000 Years of Popular Music" UK tour. (Which means I probably never heard this particular string in action.)

It's pricey as all get-out, but the money goes to the fine folks at the Organization for Tropical Studies. And my gosh, it makes me happy to have it resting lightly on my arm.

It's got a little smudge on it--you can see it in the picture. I wonder what music made that smudge?

I paid a bit extra for the charm, which is a small guitar pick.
