    GAS Poetry

    The Adamantine Perfection of Desire
    by Jane Hirshfield
    Nothing more strong
    than to be helpless before desire.
    No reason,
    the simplified heart whispers,
    the argument over,
    only This.

    No longer choosing anything but assent.
    Its bowl scraped clean to the bottom,
    the skull-bone cup no longer horrifies,
    but, rimmed in silver, shines.
    A spotted dog follows a b!tch in heat.
    Gray geese flying past us, crying.
    The living cannot help but love the world.






    I have it bad for a West St LTD.
    There would be no present musical practicality for such a purpose.
    I should want a Hiland, 305 or a SAS.
    But the wanting remains.

    Roses are red,
    violets are blue,
    I went to buy a PRS,
    and came home with two.

    Take that Jane Hirshfield.

    Also, Serg, can't blame you! Sweet looking axe.
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.

    Doth thou covet another's prize?

    Did you reference yourself as a spotted dog?

    What color sparkle would you paint it?

    I, too, dream of this guitar. It's shockingly beautiful. Glad I'm not the only one that swiped the image so I can drool over it at will!

    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    This is an actual song from our next record we haven't recorded yet.

    In my daily email, you arrived with a smile on your face
    Lookin' sexy, so fine, temptation outweighs my good sense

    You're what I've wanted
    You're what I been looking for
    You fill all my shallow needs
    You fill all my desire du jour

    And now you're on the way
    And you're taking toooooooo loooooong
    I'll just have to wait, wait another day!
    this fukkin GAS flame

    No rush to open the box, take my time, enjoy the moment
    Happy New Guitar Day! To me! It's a joyous instant
    My mad GAS flame, buy and sell game, never enough
    Grass is greener, lean and meaner, always wanting more
    Sell the greatest for the latest, my crazy GAS flame.

    That settles it, I'm to play a dark westy. The only question is the Santana channel or the extreme channel.

    So much for GAS poetry. I'm ready for some GAS pottery.

    When I come to the forum
    My blood pressure is soarin'
    I feel intense gas
    Knowing I just cannot Pass
    The thought of new guitar smell
    Causes me to think, what can I sell
    My Kidney or 1st born
    and how to avoid the gf's scorn
    The price is an ouch
    and I will probably end up on the couch
    That probably won't stop me
    at least new I avoid the ebay fee
    A DGT or maybe an SC
    A Custom 22 or a P22
    Maybe a Private Stock
    May leave my head on the chopping block
    So here is my Plastic and my kidney too
    I only pray the next gas is left to Markie or You
    Or I could get lucky and 11top will spot me
    or I may just dream of a genie blue

    Yeah I know corny but it is all I could think of at 2:30 in the morning

    Alan...I'll finish it for you...

    There once was a Soap from Nantucket,
    who's owner would proudly pluck it...
    He'd play it all night, cuz the neck felt just right,
    At some point, Paul probably chucked it.
    (Throw your axe in the air like ya just don't care)

    A Custom Soapbar is of what we speak,,,
    Who's neck is so straight, needs nary a tweak...
    From Country to rock, even wearing a sock...
    This axe is certainly not for the meek.

    A guitar that was built in south Mar'land
    Was played by a guy in a hair band.
    When he made it squeal
    He hoped ladies would feel
    The area south of his waist band.

    Markie's basement doesn't get the best cell reception. Double banged a post.
