The Light On Your Fingertips Is Starlight

Excerpt of a poem by Michael McClure (Edited by Rob Brezsny):


THE UNIVERSE IS THE MESSIAH.
THE SENSES ARE GODS AND GODDESSES.
THE MAMMAL & THE STAR ARE EQUAL.
ALL CREATURES OF WING, FIN, FUR, TENTACLE, PROTOPLASM — ARE EQUAL.
THE PHYSIOLOGICAL BODY IS PURE SPIRIT.
EACH SELF IS MANY SELVES.
THERE IS NOT INTELLIGENCE BUT INTELLIGENCES.
CRUELTY, TORTURE, SELFISHNESS, VANITY ARE BORING.
THERE ARE, AND ARE NOT, MOLECULES AND ATOMS.
THE SEA URCHIN IS A GREAT PHILOSOPHER.
MONEY IS FUNNY.
EVERYTHING IS NATURAL.
REASON IS BEAUTY.
MONOTONY IS MADNESS.
THE FRONTIER IS OUTSIDE.
THE FRONTIER IS INSIDE.
EARTH IS A SNOW LEOPARD.
LIFE BEGINS WITH COILING — MOLECULES & NEBULAE.
RELIGION, MATERIALISM, POLITICS, PROGRESS, TECHNOLOGY ARE EVANGELISMS.
EVANGELISMS ARE PROLIFERATIONS OF MONOTONY.
PROPAGANDA IS NARCOSIS.
THE LIGHT ON YOUR FINGERTIPS IS STARLIGHT.
NATIONS ARE FALSE DIVISIONS OF CONTINENTS.
THE BODY IS ELF LAND.
LIFE IS NOT REST BUT ACTION.
LIGHT AND DARKNESS ARE ARBITRARY DIVISIONS.
CLEANLINESS IS UNDEFINABLE AND AS NATURAL AS FILTH.
MADNESS IS TEMPORARY AND NATURAL.
WHERE THE BODY IS — THERE ARE ALL THINGS.
