“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
