I've been wondering what to say about Prince since his death.
And I've decided to say this.
I'm a writer, a songwriter, a poet. I don't pretend to be exceptional.
But I can appreciate great writing when I see/hear it.
And for 30 years now I've thought this was one of the most brilliant lines ever penned for a popular song:
"Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with/I just want your extra time, and your/Kiss."
I loved and respected Prince, even though his music was like nothing else I typically listened to.
It was just that good.
I'm sorry he's gone.
It's better to burn out than to fade away.
