First you invited us to

have a beer in your

van, then you

offered back stage fun

by the lake in Syracuse.

The DBs,

then you, Little Feat:

a legendary

show because it changed

my life. Oh, but I still cry

about yours.  What the hell made

it impossible

for you to

resist whatever

recreational was in

front of you,

or bar fights?  Your home

town of Reston police

finally had enough, too

much, but how did this lead such

a gifted

guitarist to end it all?

Or did you

have it ended for

you?  I switched the guilt

I felt to

a story in my favor.

I still pray

our short time as friends

was good for you too.
