About My Library
'Look, I need a...I need a bohemian atmosphere. I'm an artist, Mr. Turner. Like yourself.'
'You juggle?'
'Why not?'
'Why, why not? Why not a jongleur? It's the third oldest profession... You're a performer of natural magic.'
'I... I perform.'
'I bet you do... I can tell by your vibrations...you're the anti-gravity man! Amateur night at the Apollo! Cheops in his bloody pyramid... He dug a juggler or two, didn't he?! Remember? And the tetrarchs of Sodom...and Orbis Tertius... Am I right? Am I right, babe?!'
'More or less. Personally, I just...you know... Perform.'
-- PERFORMANCE (1970)

'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
