About me'I rot before I ripen.' -- Frederick Seidel

About my library'ah, here I stand again in this old 'lectric whirlwind
the sea rushes up my knees like flame
and I feel like just some misplaced Joan of Arc
and the cause is you lookin' up at me
oh baby, I remember when you were born
it was dawn and the storm settled in my belly
and I rolled in the grass and I spit out the gas
and I lit a match and the void went flash
and the sky split and the planets hit
balls of jade dropped and existence stopped'
--Patti Smith
