    Mushrooms - P. cubensis

Like curtains of raindrops falling down
Each glittering jewel a twinkling sound
your love sweeps upon me
within me
A breath of deadly beauty
And conciousness therein
You glitter and shine
And turn inside out
these selves that are calling my soul to come out
A sweet breath is blowing my soul into fire
My body is dying so that I might go higher
Into the void I now burst anew
The celestial creatures a blessing bestow
On my selfless dying and comedy show
The same experience a friend once had
to wander through the heavens
to experience the riddle of the universe
to remember what you forgot
to know who you are
to know you've come so far
to know your soul's evolution is infinite
to be ordered to say your piece of the puzzle
that is the fathomless mystery
that is the universe within us
to feel divine love ravage our body
and turn every cell inside out
to feel your bones ache
and know that one day your body will die
to know what will be left behind
to go beyond the door
that is guarded by the image of our self
to sacrifice this image so we may be born anew
well my friend said he did not know what to do
when he came back and had to talk to me and you
but he was very humble that friend of mine
who had sacrificed his body
to witness the mysteries of time
just imagine
just imagine being a limitless being
constantly imaging itself
constantly getting to know itself
constantly making love to itself
constantly suprised
and constantly being alarmed by itself
constantly enchanted by itself
constantly dying and constantly being born
constantly mended and constantly torn
constantly crying
and constantly laughing at us
the myriad lifeforms that inhabit it
that are it
that are its eyes and ears
And after all this I hear an angel's astonished shout
does it really fucking matter
who we think we are
does it really fucking matter if the Jones have a bigger car
does it really fucking matter
if someone beats you up
does it really fucking matter
if you live in a rubbish bin
when such truly timeless beauty
can be found within
