The dog will take away your senses with him
he can see for you
The delicate scent of flowers
is the fragrance of the universe
I eat the flower
and it’s perfume is my blood
Together we form a dog
in search for the sacred flower
Together we form a flower
in search for the sacred water
This is the moment when the word is made flesh
—  The Holy Mountain (1973)
