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 guitar."
by Wallace Stevens
The Man With The Blue Guitar (1937)

I'm going to use that for one of my albums someday. Don't steal it! (First recording session on Saturday. :)
