The Body Electric

“I Sing the Body Electric” is the title of a book of short stories by Ray Bradbury, an episode of the Twilight Zone, and an album by Weather Report. In case you think I’m some kind of cultural bon vivant, I discovered this by checking it in Wikipedia.
You see, I was pretty sure this was a quote from Walt Whitman, and that he had picked it up from William Blake. I was right about Walt, but wrong about William. I haven’t had a Blake fix for a while now, and I must be due for one.
