Old Guitars

Guitar Lexington

 

 

Old guitars lean on chairs.
Sound boxes curve
like bodies of women.
Blank music paper scatters
to catch notes which fall
from long fingers
with blue knuckles.

Tantric mandalas
of guitar chord spin
for a moment in the air.
Cigarette smoke settles in waves
around un-barbered heads–­
islands in a phantom sea.

Music played urgently
pushes back the void.
The world shaped by it
can be photographed
but not the sound itself.

My Kenwood KR-4600 amp and the Pioneer PL-516 turntable. This is exquisite sound. Click on photos for larger view.

This is how to do it if you want to listen to music. There has never been a iPod built that can produce sound like this rig can. There’s not a molecule of digital in the whole pipeline. It’s pure analog. Run it out to a pair of Bose speakers and it’s ecstasy.
