Nocturne: Lost In Tube's Delight
by Grant

From your sweet spot you sit
in the darkness lit
by tubes aglow your soul takes flight
laying aside your cares tonight

The walls around you melt
musical passions are thrown wide open
your mind is immersed in rhythm

Stars shine bright
taking you to a new height
and tubey fireflies glow
whilst in a vacuum currents flow

Pentodes and triodes sing
smooth or ribbed plate
no one can debate
moves you more than solid state

As you turn the pot
the plates run hot

The soundstage widens
and everything brightens
when glowing glass radiates heat
you stay glued to your seat

The music comes to a crescendo
as you reach audio nirvana

And in orgasmic delight
you open your eyes to tubes alight.
