I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth. I believe in mascara and blood and ash and cum.
I believe in poetry. I believe in unbelief. I stand in awe within a world trembling for them, all and ever.
I believe in love: visceral, brutal, perpetual, ekstatic.
I believe in the nameless ache of beauty and the soul’s awakening to the seduction of pain.
I believe in the mingling of water and wine, of cigarette smoke and incense.
I believe in the Flesh of the Soul, the Word of the World.
I believe in the inexorability of Body, the untried boldness of Now and Here in the face of the All and Eternal.
I believe this world is a holy Hell and that we saints become raving lunatics in the end.
