Is was a long ride home.
We were sober.
Legal, maybe the best way to describe it.
But a 185 kilometer drive,
The morning after,
On snowy roads
Will test you at the core.
It wasn't the *** with other people.
She'd given a ******* to an eighteen year old,
I'd ended up drunk and flaccid,
With my head between the legs of a lady from New York City,
Jesus christ, *******
Were never a point of contention between us.
God has one gift and we'd never been stingy, jealous,
Small minded control freaks or emotional kamikaze suiciders,
Dive bombing the happiness out of each other,
Nor were we myopic work slaves jacking off to the next tech treat,
Nor were we stingy uptight ***** faces,
Trading in the allusion of human perfection.
We knew love and we knew life and we knew the power of new.
But to say Jimi Hendrix wasn't the greatest axe player to ever trip.
**** man, that just couldn't stand.
So we listened, the windows shaking,
The seething poison of artistic disagreement,
Like nerve gas, art is serious ****, you feel me?
All Along the Watchtower, Hey Joe, Crosstown, Voodoo Child, Angel...
Some **** just won't stand
November 27, 1942 - September 18, 1970-- Jimi-- thinking of you.
