You are what you are inside. It's often forgotten when one looks at the
outside appearance of a person or themselves, in say a mirror. You're 40.
You look into the mirror. You're 50. You feel the same as always; but you
see your reflection and you can hardly believe your eyes. Remember the
sunflower inside, in all its splendid magnificient youth. That's you.
That's others. That's the world you walk within while you're still alive.

Dearest poster Kayla... I wanted to let you know what the word sutra means
in relation to this particular poem. In Buddhism, a "sutra" is a teaching,
or a lesson. Being that Ginsberg identified himself with Buddhism and its
teachings, I would imagine that this is what he is referring to in
"Sunflower Sutra". This poem is Ginsberg's lesson... shake off the dust,
you sunflowers... for "we're not skin of grime, we're not our dread bleak
dusty imageless locomotive, we're all golden sunflowers inside". Hope is
the lesson.

This poem is AWESOME i love the gay imagery he uses. It's so inspiring to
hear another gay man so openly talk about his issues.....I love the use of
the word sphincter....probably cause I love to lick sphincters...hehe!!!
