Cosmopolitan Greetings by Allen Ginsberg

Stand up
against
the government
against God
against absolutes
and coersion
change is the only
ablution

ordinary minds
trying to find
meaning
the eternal
precept
and perception
obscuring
what
would be vividry
if you would
notice
self-noticing

catch yourself
thinking
self-select
remember
the future
is meant
to cost
only present-check
drink tossed
death
molecules
clank
scientific data
to thank
for this permission
to take
self
to the bank
in ex-change
for
thanks

Whitman
he
someone
to believe
in
inside-skulls
thoughts-rended
intensity
syntactical
managing
paranoid
ending

and through it
all
I come
out feeling
more alive
that’s
why art
is shapely
universal
personality

re-course-ing
through
fragmentation
idiom
vowels
to be
consonant
with
appreciation

for savor
