Comme un cri de ralliement


Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy ! Holy !
The world is holy ! The soul is holy ! The skin is holy ! The nose is holy ! The tongue and cock and hand and asshole holy !
Everything is holy ! everybody’s holy ! everywhere is holy ! everyday is in eternity ! Everyman’s an angel !
The bum’s as holy as the seraphim ! the madman is holy as you my soul are holy !
The typewriter is holy the poem is holy the voice is holy the hearers are holy the ecstasy is holy !
Holy Peter holy Allen holy Solomon holy Lucien holy Kerouac holy Huncke holy Burroughs holy Cassady holy the unknown buggered and suffering beggars holy the hideous human angels !
Holy my mother in the insane asylum ! Holy the cocks of the grandfathers of Kansas !
Holy the groaning saxophone ! Holy the bop apocalypse ! Holy the jazzbands marijuana hipsters peace peyote pipes & drums !
Holy the solitudes of skyscrapers and pavements ! Holy the cafeterias filled with the millions ! Holy the mysterious rivers of tears under the streets !
Holy the lone juggernaut ! Holy the vast lamb of the middleclass ! Holy the crazy shepherds of rebellion ! Who digs Los Angeles IS Los Angeles !
Holy New York Holy San Francisco Holy Peoria & Seattle Holy Paris Holy Tangiers Holy Moscow Holy Istanbul !
Holy time in eternity holy eternity in time holy the clocks in space holy the fourth dimension holy the fifth International holy the Angel in Moloch !
Holy the sea holy the desert holy the railroad holy the locomotive holy the visions holy the hallucinations holy the miracles holy the eyeball holy the abyss !
Holy forgiveness ! mercy ! charity ! faith ! Holy ! Ours ! bodies ! suffering ! magnanimity !
Holy the supernatural extra brilliant intelligent kindness of the soul !
