kind of long with overuse of ummm and awesome
<3 Much love Patti and Cairo
Patti, I was at the Wiltern show on Sept. 7th!! I was so happy to be there. It was my first big outing since I had a complete left hip replacement on July 18th. Thank you for the fabulous concert. You were so amazing!! I was dancing in my chair the entire night and singing, too. My friend and I had seats in the Loge (upstairs). The staff at the Wiltern were so kind and attentive. There was no elevator and I couldn’t climb stairs yet, so they put us up front on the right side (literally first row)! I was ecstatic. I love you. ♥️
Finally retrieved my copy of Easter from my college roommate! If he can’t play it, I can!
For Lovely Patricia
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
– William Blake (extract from Auguries of Innocence)
☕ 🥧 ❤
I was so happy to read that you are a recipient of the 2022 Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize! I love your work and also the way you read other poets' work to us.
I saw you at the Wiltern on Wednesday. I’m the one who caught the poem that you threw out to the crowd. I can die, now🥰
Let me know if your doing any sit ins or side shows. See you on the 14th. Also are you playing the Golden Gate Park party? I have accommodations with friends where I can bring my big dog friend Bear. But I’d have to drive there, I here Elvis Costello is playing, 8 stages hidden In Golden Gate Park! Maybe not hidden but hello that’s one of the best parks to play in America if not the world. I may go if you’re playing or not.
Hello Patricia. I hope you're staying cool in La La Land. Your book "Devotion" found me just when I needed it most. I'm on the last phase of my visual poem called Anamnesis.
Also your Patti Smith and Band poster from The Fillmore 1998 concert found its way to me out of the blue. It's framed in mint condition. It will be on my wall of inspiration along with Frida Kahlo, Bob Dylan, and R.E.M.
Please do as long a ramble at night as you feel like doing! I could listen for hours to you, as I am mesmerized by Cairo's tail flipping back and forth around your hand...
I am excited to hear of new books I don't know, so thanks for the new one. Have fun out west.
Patti, I am making the pilgrimage to Pioneertown. I am on a mission to mark a muddle age birthday and make a vow. I wonder if you would consider playing Southern Cross under the desert stars for my daughter Daisy and me? A girl can ask... Love Meg
See you in Joshua! Is there a way to private message you. I have a star party to go to Still trying to figure out logistics
That's a wee bit funny Patti..that cross..thingy bing my friend had a dream..three dreams about little fires. The third dream had a cross in the liddle fire.
That's a wee dream for my mum. She's so brave.
Thanks Patti 🙏🏼 have a safe Journey ❣
You and the band were totally rocking the house tonight! Brava!! That was the most fun I’ve had in 10 days. Hahahaha.
I hope you have fun in SoCal, despite the heat wave. Sending you love. ❤️
