Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth

M I N U T E S    T O    G O

By Brion Gysin

the hallucinated have come to tell you that yr utilities
are being shut off      dreams monitored      though directed
sex is shutting down everywhere      you are being sent

all word are taped      agents everywhere
marking down the live ones      to exterminate

they are turning out the lights

no      they are not evil      nor the devil      but men
on a mission      with a spot of work to do

this      dear friends      they intend to do on you

you have been offered a choice      between liberty and
freedom      and      No!      you cannot have both

the next step      is everyone into space      but it has been
a long dull wait      since the last tower of babel
that first derisive visit of the      paraclete

let's not hear that noise again       and again

that may well be      the last word anywhere

this is not the beginning      in the geginning was the word
the word has been in for a too      long time
you in the word and      the word in you

we are out
you are in

we have come to let you out

here and now we will show you      what you can do
with and to
the word
the words
any word
all the words

Pick a book      any book      cut it up
cut up
the bible
the koran
the book of moroni
confucius the bhagavad gita
business correspondence
all the words

slice down the middle      dice into sections
according to taste
chop in some bible      pour on some Madison Avenue
shuffle cards      toss like confette
taste it like piping hot       alphabet soup
pass yr friends' letters      yr office carbons
through any such sieve      as you may find or invent

you will soon see      just what they really are
saying      this is the terminal method for
finding the truth

piece together a masterpiece      a week
use better materials      more highly charged words
there is no longer a need      to drum up a season of
geniuses      be your own agent      until we deliver
the machine      in commercially reasonable quantities

we wish to announce      that while we esteem
this to be truly      the American Way
we have no commitments      with any government

the writing machine      is for everybody
do it yourself      until the machine comes
here is the system      according to us
