written on your first guitar that did not have an open middle like most guitars do
just below the open s-shaped carving that makes the guitar look like a violin:
you know, i didn’t think about you being a womanizer and a cheater on your wife,
but your music moved me from the beginning and so you remain one of my heroes.
just above where your hand would have moved and left skin behind:
may 2, 2006
i just saw your biopic
i felt you with me
you have been with me for some time
i can safely say my admiration for you has since turned into love.
you will always be The Man.
