Licking honey from a razor’s blade

The eyes of the learned gouged out by books

The beauty of the maidens worn by display

The warrior dead from not knowing fear

It is ironical to see the dharma of Samsara

Celebrities deafened by fame

The hand of the artist crippled by rheumatism

The moth flew into the oil lamp

The blind man walks with a torch

The cripple runs in his wheelchair

A fool’s rhetoric is deep and learned

The laughing poet

Has run out of breath and died

The religious spin circles in accordance with religion

If they had not practiced their religion they would not spin

The Yogis spin by practicing Yoga

If they don’t have chackras to spin they are not Yogis

Chogyam is spinning, watching the spinning/samsara

If there is no Samsara/spinning there is no chogyam

In Cynical letters 22 May 1972
