    M Train, by Patti Smith (September) The official follow-up to Smith’s beautiful, National Book Award-winning memoir of her life with Robert Mapplethorpe in 1970s New York City, Just Kids, is due in September. Early word has it that this book will focus on Smith’s life as a musician, perhaps touching on her relationship with her late husband, the MC5 guitarist Fred “Sonic” Smith.

    i fucking dig patti smith And then the little boy's face lit up with such naked joy That the sun burned around his lids and his eyes were like two suns, White lids, white opals, seeing everything just a little bit too clearly And he looked around and there was no black ship in sight, No black funeral cars, nothing except for him the raven And fell on his knees and looked up and cried out, “no, daddy, don't leave me here alone, Take me up, daddy, to the belly of your ship, Let the ship slide open and I'll go inside of it Where you're not human, you are not human.”
