Patti Smith

I dag vil denne bloggen bare hylle poet og rockeartist Patti Smith, og gratulere henne med 60 års dagen! Himmel og hav så godt det gjorde når (den John Cale produserte) første LP'en "Horses" kom i 1975!

I anledning dagen tar vi den helt ut (”no e det rock and roll her alså”), og serverer et av diktene hennes fra ”Seventh heaven” (Telegraph Books, 1972).

dog dream

have you seen
dylans dog
it got wings
it can fly
if you speak
of it to him
its the only
time dylan
cant look you in the eye

have you held
dylans snake
it rattles like a toy
it sleeps in the grass
it coils in the hand
it hums and it strikes out
when dylan cries out
when dylan cries out

have you pressed
to your face
dylans bird
dylans bird
it lies on dylans hip
trembles inside of him
it drops upon the ground
it rolls with dylan round
its the only one
who comes
when dylan comes

have you seen
dylans dog
it got wings
it can fly
when it lands
like a clown
hes the only
thing allowed
to look dylan in the eye
