fascinate me.. nonetheless
surely then, man do jest
for where he would make nature straight
it will eventually flatline him in his place

it's all relative
shit on a stick
last muestra de excreta
survived the cremation.

man is clever; man is great
to take the crooked, make it straight
with roads and bridge do chasms cross
with might, he minimize his loss
while somewhere, something must be lost
and prices paid and reals costs
but blinders keep him from the cross
he would have another bear

a twisted cross
a straight cross
a double cross

cross my fingers and hope to die
symbols make it all so easy

Q: How do you point directly to mind?

ZMSS: Not dependant on anything means a straight pointing to mind. Pointing is mind. When a monk asks, "What is Buddha?" and the response is, "Dry shit on a stick" or "Three pounds of flax," usually people don't understand. "Dried shit on a stick... that is Buddha? Why? That's not Buddha. That is dried shit on a stick... that's dirty."

However if somebody experiences inside and outside becoming one point [claps hands], that is the mind. Mind makes everything... sky, ground, dirty, clean‹it doesn't matter‹mind makes it all. Mind made "dried shit on stick," but that's not Zen style, that's explanation style. Zen just points.

and man tries to straighten the mighty miss I sip
and old man river goes his own way
the corp of engineers
turns wandering rivers
into concrete ditches
running in a straight line
to hellish unintended
enviormental
consequences

In our desire to run a straight line
we find ourselves running in circles
and progress is lost
but the cost is profits
for the corporate dream.
