Happy Anniversary Robert Goldstein

Looking For The Light

I heard this song yesterday, Robert instantly came to mind, his enthusiasm for the band reminds me of how I felt hearing them for the first time.

Robert, I’m sending my love as you celebrate 27 years, thick, thin, rich, poor, sick, sicker and still in love!      M

Sudden Tears

…and Rimbaud’s limb being so caught up goes be-bopping out the door into the forest through the trees – raga rag in the grass overturning picnic baskets whizzing past churchyard gates right in step it genuflects then aims and leaps over the scene over the rainbow out of the canvas into space pure space—as remote and colorless as dear arthur’s face. a face made incorporeal  full of grace.  sunken eyes—those cobalt treasures closed forever.

clenched fist relaxed wrist
his pipe turned in…

out in the garden the children are gathering
it’s not a whim. they are accurate immaculate,
as cruel as him.
they sing:
legs can’t flail
cock can’t ball
teeth can’t bare
baby can’t crawl
rimbaud rimbaud facing the wall
cold as hail dead as a doornail

sudden tears!

Excerpt from the poem Rimbaud Dead, by Patti Smith

I Like Playing with Dolls

I liked to play with dolls when I was a kid.

My dolls unnerved my Father who forced me to join a football team.

The team tossed me after the first game because I stopped in the
middle of a play to pull up my socks.

I hate the feeling of droopy socks; but back to the dolls:

I had Barbie and Skipper.

I also had Ken, and GI Joe.

GI Joe was the doll for boys who played with dolls in the closet.

Joe and Ken had a one-off in a foxhole and it drove Skipper to suicide.

She had a secret crush on Joe.

I started playing with digital dolls with The Sims and eventually joined one of the online worlds of the metaverse.

I liked to play with dolls when I was a kid.

I still do.
