rhythmic renunciation

for those with a little dust in their eyes

it was only after accepting
what was already known,
that the ox, ready
was willing to
lay down a
yoke.
a
rythm
preconceived,
yes there is a kind
of freedom between any
two numbers, yet going beyond
is predecated upon unbinding even
that concept so simple, as distance
across space and time, and it
is only the hereless here
and the timeless time,
where rythm itself
is rythmless,
emptiness
is
form.
separation
is
unity.
it is exactly
unity.
the brakets,
were only a form
for spontaneous reassembly,
real aiki. make bigger, more impact.1
not one two, just one. now none. now beyond.
gone. gone. gone far beyond. gone really beyond! bodhi svaha!
this mountain is only accessible, for ones with a little dust in their eyes.2
tadaima!
i am home,
with emptiness.
we truly are
homeless.
it is
all
true.
all of it.
