Explaining the Power of Now Over Tea

Considering how so few seekers become
the German philosopher gurus wonder what
the next thought will become. The key, over
the cup of coffee, beside the plastic
ketchup container and orbiting
the plate of eggs,
is to forbid ego-identification with the pain-body.
Wherefore these hyphens, bringers not of fulfillment
but a vulnerable body that lingers
will die surely?
Surrender is an internal
meteorological phenomenon.
To be silent is to set the planetary stage
a massive asteroid
of growth. I'll mention briefly again here:
the core
delusion is the thinking mind.
Once cut with the cocaine
of satori, the madness of our partnership
is a piece of coal dropped
from our flaming palms.
