ABCs

After noon when we’ve eaten our lunch, I watched;

 Before dawn when the sun has yet to rise, I waited.

Cautiously, I lurked here and there.

Directly at dusk I was approached by a yeoman

Enchanted by the mid-summers breeze,

Forgoing all clamor,

Glanced he toward the horizon and said raspingly.

“Harken to the melody,

Intrigue a kind and

Join in hallucination.

Kindle the fire,

Light the ambush;

Medicalize insanity,

Note the paradox,

Oscillate the pendulum,

Perchance it will work.

Quarry the gems,

Restore your continuity;

Scratch the edge of understanding.

Trouble not a neighbor’s toro,

Underestimate the undergoing struggle.

Verify VIN and PIN.

-Xylophones are outdated, mindest thou-

Waddle as a duck doth,

Yearn for efficiency not sufficiency.”

Zen... In the same manner he came-he left.
