About a Boy - Patti Smith

toward another
he has gone
to breathe an air
beyond his own
towrd a wisdom
beyond the shelf
towrd a dream
that dreams itself

about a boy
beyond it all

from the forest
from the foam
from the field
that he had
known
toward a river
twice as blessed
toward the inn
of happiness

about a boy
beyond it all

from a chaos
raging sweet
from the deep
and dismal street
towrd another kind of peace
toward the great
emptiness

about a boy
beyond it all
