used to fly, now i float

just kids

i read patti smith’s memoir of her life with robert mapplethorpe while listening to my rolling stones records on saturday evening before going out to watch kathleen hanna DJ and the raincoats play at the MoMA. it’s like i had one long date with the city itself.

also, i can’t stop watching live videos of patti, and i wish i’d really appreciated seeing her at the bardavon in poughkeepsie when i was 15 or so. i didn’t know what it meant then.
