every morning you read from this hopelessly German mystic
then you meditate on his strange ideas
you wonder why you underlined this passage
(even starred that paragraph twice)
were you much smarter in the past?
were you delusional and now you're sane?
back then were you insane but more profound?
your cat hears your soft noises
mixed wonderfully with the songs of birds and insects
outside the screened openings
then the hole of your silent meditation
which he fills with being
