Angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night,

from Allen Ginsberg – Howl on Rap Genius

Meaning

Note the religious diction Ginsberg employs: “Angelheaded…ancient heavenly connection.” The people he describes are highly spiritual, but not necessarily religious. They actively seek to get in touch with that spirituality through “unorthodox” means.
