Nice poem and interesting choice of a sculpture. I liked how you arranged the poem, with the shape, the repetition, and the meditative flow of the words kind of made me feel like I was in a chant.

funnily enough the title I started out with was "make your own mantra (and chant it)"  but thought is was a bit too long... but that's certainly the way it reads itself (in my head at least)

The chanting effect is indeed prominent, but the imagery is way cool too. Allen Ginsberg's bowels have probably never been used so wisely.
