I’ll take Manhattan in a garbage bag
with Latin written on it that says
“it’s hard to give a shit these days”.
Manhattan’s sinking like a rock
into the filthy Hudson, what a shock.
They wrote a book about it.
They said it was like ancient Rome.
The perfume burned his eyes
holding tightly to her thighs.
And then something flickered for a minute
and then it vanished and was gone.
– Lou Reed: Romeo Had Juliette
Goodbye, Lou. Thank you for opening my sixteen-year-old-girl eyes, my lost, confused, lonely, and sheltered eyes, to a beautiful imperfect painful achingly gorgeous sad thrilling wonderful world that I’d never seen before.
Thank you for the brilliance. For all of it, for everything.
And thank you for saving me, over and over again.
