Imagine Your Body

Imagine your Body.
Let your Body imagine You.
Your Body is what you have imagined in the past
And your Soul is the glow of your Body in the present.
What you imagine now is your future Body.
To imagine that You are anything more than your Body
is illusion.
To imagine that your Body is anything less than a cosmos -
each cell a furnace, roaring with delight
in the radiance of biological complexity,
each atom a wild and perfect swirl of sentience
whose center is the womb of suns;
and in the silence at the proton's core,
the infinitesimal pause between the pulse
of quark and anti-quark, this sky,
the vast out-whirling mother of night
who mantles your hope with stars -
To imagine your Body anything less
is original Sin.
