(For Michael Murphy's 85th birthday)
For more than fifty years
We have been preparing the optimum site
For the Large Hadron Collider of the Spirit.
We are accepting proposals:
Come show your face.
We offer you the Pacific ocean
We offer you the Big Sur coast.
We offer you the legendary hot springs
We offer you an aware and intelligent staff
Each with a PhD
In one or more of
Aldous Huxley's nonverbal arts.
But be forewarned
We are experienced:
We have witnessed every scam,
Every ego-tripping, self-deluded vision,
If you've got something big, hot and alive.
If you've been luckily electrified
By some new aspect of Deep Reality
O fortunate, O blessed one
Then bring it here.
That's what we live for.
We yearn for you
To arrive and turn us on.
We'd love to be the womb
Inside of which
Your vision blossoms.
