"Let there be lightbulbs & liquefaction"

The Goddess who created this passing world
Said Let there be lightbulbs & liquefaction
Life spilled out onto the street, colors whirled
Cars & the variously shod feet were born
And the past & future & I born too

From "The Goddess Who Created This Passing World" by Alice Notley. The complete poem is here.

Minerva Dressing, Lavinia Fontana (1552-1614)
