“Yet you could feel the vibration in the air, a sense of hastening.

It had started with the moon, inaccessible poem that it was.

Now men had walked upon it, rubber treads on a pearl of the gods.

Perhaps it was an awareness of time passing, the last summer of a decade.

Sometimes I just wanted to raise my hands and stop.

But stop what?

Maybe just growing up.”

-“Patti Smith & Robert Mapplethorpe at Chelsea Hotel”, 1969

Extracto de “Just Kids”, Patti Smith, 2010
