Send Off For Lou Reed

Thursday there is a send off
For Lou Reed in New York.
Reed's music will be played.
There will be sadness and happiness;

Pleasure and pain.

I will not be there,
Of course.
I will be in the sawmill.
Listening to the metal machine music

Of laser guided carbide tipped saws
Ripping through old growth timber.
The sound of
Money being made.

It sounded like the memorial went well. Looked like Lou's widow liked it. I am, this very moment, glad Lou did not do a Christmas song, not counting the line about getting thrown in jail on Christmas Eve.
