have you ever been to electric lady land?
gypsy eyes, bold as love
machine gun fire burning desire—
hear my train a-comin’, lover man
let me move you

I recently visited a restaurant that had this likeness of Jimi Hendrix painted on the wall near our table (and titles to many of his songs on the seating). Jimi is a Seattle icon, though I won’t say role model, ha…however, he was a brilliantly talented guitarist. I crafted this poem (and title) from titles of songs he wrote, recorded or performed.
Bold As Love
Have You Ever Been (To Electric Ladyland)
Hear My Train A-Comin’
Let Me Move You
Long Hot Summer Night
nice....listened to jimi a bit in my day and recognize a few of those songs....nice job weaving them together in this...
What a brilliant idea for a poem. I love listening to some old Henrix :)
A really cool idea - funky and creative!
very, very cool, Jennifer.
Very trippy--and the painting, too. It's taken me years to really appreciate Hendrix.
oh down memory lane we go... :) this poem will have me dragging out old records....
Edgy images that flash like glints from another time.
I agree that this is a brilliant little poem!
Very, very well done.
