The Ancient Modern
Heir of Prophecies, Part V / Joshua Alan Sturgill
In the morning, you walked on three feet:
Being, Consciousness and Bliss.
By afternoon, you walked on two: Revelation
Natural and Supernal.
Now night has come. Crawl along on Strong and Weak
Forces, Gravity and Radiation:
the Fundamental Laws of the temple of science
in the laboratory of religion.
We must convert the earth into sterile objects of desire,
we must escape into the safety
of nature morte — art as controlled birth. Demand
what you will. Nothing is determined.
