Joanna Garrido


Psychedelia; 60’s sound

Lou Reed’s Velvet Underground

Eddie Sedgwick, Warhol’s muse

The Factory, dancing without shoes


Swirling patterns, geometric

Stoned and spinning, tastes eclectic

Summer of Love, 67

Hedonistic trips to heaven


Morrison, The Doors were in

Light my Fire, Decadent grin

Open up doors of perception

Out of it, no recollection


Edie, Jim were doomed it seems

They dance in psychedelic dreams

Lizard King and Warhol’s muse

Trip the night, not wearing shoes.

        Well, maybe not epilepsy as such, but too much looking at pics like that, and flashing lights, etc, cause me to have funny turns - probably me age! lol.
