A POEM DEDICATED TO JIM DOWDY

Why do men write poetry celebrating other men? Don't ask me, ask Walt Whitman, Shakespeare or Homer.

For men who are not into tubes, poetry is hard to understand because it expresses such subtle, intense, yet profound emotion, the type we expect from our audio gear.

May I suggest you write a poem honoring one of your thermionic bros', and send it to him.
