Neil Young: Too Young To Rust Too Old To Die

Robot A. Hull, Creem, February 1981

In Oklahoma,
Bonnie and Josie,
Dressed in calico,
Danced around a stump.
They cried,
"Ohoyaho,
Ohoo"...the marriage
Celebrating
Of flesh and air.

– Wallace Stevens, ‘Life Is Motion’

He came dancing across the water With his galleons and guns...
– Neil Young, ‘Cortez the Killer’
