The Meat Poetry of Michael McClure
FOUND: Michael McClure
YOU’RE A BAG OF MEAT! A white sack of soft skin and fat held in shape by a lot of bones!… obody’s free of being divine!
When a man does not admit he is an animal, he is less than an animal. . . . Blake was the revolt of one man. He was not a revolutionary but a man in revolt. A creature in revolt can conceive that there is NO solution and that there will be unending construction and destruction. . . . Blake revolted with his being and maintained himself as a visionary mammal as best he might in his circumstances. His creature pride and his vision in works of poetry and painting survive as part of his body. “REVOLT IS A BIOLOGICAL PROCESS” (“Blake and the Yogin,”).
