Lineage of Giants

I use my finger

to trace the lineage of giants.

 

Ralph Waldo Emerson, gave birth to Thoreau

with secluded notebooks he writ in

which inspired my lover Walt Whitman.

 

I use my ear

to listen to the echoes

of the giant’s guitars

 

Albert King played a lick to Stevie Ray Vaughn

who played songs heard by my favorite

to John Mayer I play Slow Dancing right along

 

Take your favorite

author, musician,

dancer, whatever

it doesn’t matter

 

They were inspired by others

who you should meet now or later

you might find you enjoy

their similar flavor
