About This Poem

Renaissance Reed

     Lou Reed , Mistral of his time
     so you walked this road on the wild side
     unique in music , never selling out 
     believing in Art instead of commercialize
     
     Lou Reed the musician never compromised ~
     Sweet Jane not enough for our crowd of eccentric rockers 
     still will live forever with the many that left before you
     one can imagine from John Lennon to Johnny Ramone 

     a party in Heaven of the finest rock bestowed 
     no text , no MTV when they pursued a dream 
     New York, hotel Chelsea an age of Renaissance
     ragged jeans and leather jackets ,Art on stage  

     No, your Rock not ever fade away , it will stay sweet Jane forever ~

      For the fine Man with words , ode to Lou Reed .

    I was a fan of Lou Reed, later in my life. I love the simpleness of his music and his lyrics. No flash gimmicks to sell his products. As a boy at school I had a strange introduction to Andy Warhol. Keith Haring (NY Street Artist) came to my school in 1984. He painted a mural on our wall. I was his chaperone for the day and he talked of life in NY, Andy Warhol (I hadn't heard of Andy Warhol back then) Keith said if I ever get to NY look him up and he'll show me around. sadly he died in 1990
