I don't think he's saying nothing is holy, but that everything is. Even
humanity and civilization with all it's sins and failings is still holy and
beautiful. That is what the holy section means to me. Look even at the rest
of the poem. He glorifies the grotesque, and joyfully speaks of things most
dare not even think of.

I used the first line of this poem to create my comment in a poem of my
Holy the supernatural extra brilliant intelligent
kindness of the soul!
everything has potential to be more than it can be
most content to stagnate and just become lazy
holyness takes effort of the monumental sort
where only the deserving ships will ere to find their port
with holyness comes knowledge and a certain knowing
that blossoms forth from a seed
and continues to keep growing
it's roots spread deep into the ground
it's branches to the sky
holyness is potential
untapped and left to die

5342 viewers and no comments?! Surely this poem deserves some attention. By
labeling just about everything in the world "holy"--including many objects
that the term is completely unapplicable to--Ginsberg is suggesting through
irony that nothing is truly holy. Seems worthy of contemplation.
