things as they are

the man bent over his guitar,
a shearsman of sorts. The day was green.

They said, "You have a blue guitar,
You do not play things as they are."

The man replied, "Things as they are
Are changed upon the blue gitar."

And they said then, "But play, you must,
A tune beyond us, yet ourselves,

A tune upon the blue guitar
Of things exactly as they are."

Who is a Wallace Stevens fan out there in blogworld?

I just got back from berkeley, and saw some old friends. Props to Vince of Stratosphere 68, putting out psychedelic rock for the new world, and Matt Richards at for helping to develop an organic hide tanning process and being such a great guy. It's nice to know old friends are doing well, and it tries to make up for the old friends who are no longer with us, ...but one has to continue and hope for the best.
