Li Po, Hanshan - I keep their poems handy.
After hundreds of years passing by
The poetry still shines like new for me,
Everytime I open the books.
It's the same with the blues - I still listen
To the same Muddy Waters records.
Howlin’ Wolf, John Mayall, Mississippi John Hurt;
Those notes still bend the sadness.
Then my wife says,”Look at those old shoes!
Honey, you need to buy some new ones…”
Don’t worry, feet. I know what feels best.
