Canto CCXLIV

The hospital gives me the chance to bring
the first noble truth into focus,
for all that breathe are also suffering,

but when I head outside to wait for the bus,
within the clammy streets of Camberwell,
it’s not long til I dump my mindfulness

and tell a stranger to go fuck themselves.

    My Zen teacher would probably point out that it would be very hard for them to do any such thing.
    Welcome back to the real world.
