Here's a sample: "He regarded, with irony, his feverish wand. Vegetation papered his cabin--a tomb of moss and fern. Great fish leapt and became trophies in his hand and the stag advanced and licked his palm. // How should I be charged, he whispered. For want of so much bounty. For rearranging eyes. For being one who wished nothing less than to embrace the spine of a mountain as the light played on."
If, like me, you wanted a little more after finishing "Just Kids," it's here, but not anecdotes and insights into Robert Mapplethorpe, unless you're a better decoder than I. If, on the other hand, you became intrigued with the mythic figure of poet Patti Smith, the one who venerated Gregory Corso's "The Happy Birthday of Death," you'll find this book tantalizing and luscious.
It is a short collection of poems inspired by Patti's friend Robert. Patti and Robert's relationship is told in her book "Just Kids".
You can read this book before or after "Just Kids" but I would recommend reading "Just Kids" before reading "The Coral Sea". I suggest this because I felt more empathetic and attached to the poems and reading about Robert.
