To: Louis Armstrong

You broke my heart

sad
sweet
song

West End Blues 1928

Your trumpet was made of gold
(while you played, at least)

I'll bet the shoes you wore
never touched the ground

while your lips
were on
the horn

1928 West End Blues

Louis, you broke my heart
40 years before I was born
