The Emerald Tablet: A Cut-up Poem

The holy speech, that which is Divine Spirit, 

the embodied Logos, is immortal.

All of nature in paragraph, 

as indeed the secret song of the soul; 

the Guide of Man is mastery 

of the earliest record of this Egyptian sage.


C.J. Lane is a Southern Wisconsin based poet who works with experimental forms of  poetry, such as the cut-up method and Surrealist automatism; furthermore, he self-published a collection of experimental poetry in September of 2023, Sacred & Profane. His poetry is  inspired by history, the esoteric and occult, especially the historical Western magical tradition.
