Kurt Vonnegut, RIP

About 20 years ago I read Galapagos, liked it, and tried to write a song about it. It turned out to be one of the more dreadful things I’ve written. I think I threw it away, and I never throw away my lyrics. And because of that failed songwriting attempt I don’t like the book as much now as I did when I first read it. Cat’s Cradle was better. Kurt, I know you don’t know me, I know you’re dead, but if you can hear me, I promise I WILL read Slaughterhouse Five, like everyone says I should.
