Searching for a Gibson

Searching for a Gibson
I found one –
Australian
“It doesn’t look right”
Said one commentator
On eBay

Searching for a Gibson
I dreamt of one
A worn black body
Dust on the pick-ups
As undesirable
As a dead blackbird

Still searching for a Gibson
One that has never been made yet
One that doesn’t exist
Even though I can hear it playing
