Placebo 

Take a pill that does nothing,

expect nothing, 

and do nothing – 

and see what happens. 

Calming Of Thought 

The calming of thought

unveils

the red, red rose.

De-Substantializing 

​Can you de-substantialize 

notions like time and truth 

and good and realization 

so that they are not immutable 

things fixed, 

with essential definitions, 

but are flexible terms 

expressing shifting ways 

you and other beings are

in changing circumstances? 

Thus: the cessation 

of fixed and isolated self. 

Every Which Way 

Look:

everything 

every which way 

is centered by

this exact

limited 

you

ungraspable. 

Impending Catastrophe 

​The impending catastrophe 

has already happened 

much more than once.  

And every blind fear 

and certitude 

brings it once again closer. 

The continuing catastrophe, 

isn’t it our own insecurity 

and lack unending

finding others to blame? 

Changing It 

​Why do you 

want to endlessly change 

things? 

Why do you want 

to change  

how others think? 

Why do you want to change 

your self? 

On occasion, 

can you simply 

not do? 

Stories 

​What stories do you tell to survive? 

What stories do to tell to feel better? 

What stories do you tell to feel bitter? 

How do your stories relate to others

(are there allies, adversaries, and

 the demonized?) 

How do your stories perceive, affect, 

and even create reality? 

Have you ever tried to change 

some of your stories? 

What happened? 

Were others changed in your eyes? 

Were you changed? 

What is at the heart of shifting identity? 

What remains when the stories stop? 

Centering 

​Can you 

center

what isn’t 

I

me  

mine 

Wisdom Desire 

​Wisdom is not the transcendence 

of desire,  

but its total realization.  

Vast Void 

​Cicada drone

desire 

seeing

her face 

glowing 

moonlight.
