Question to Question

Question to Question

Question to question, I’ve just been

following along

as if each question was a paper lantern

on a path to the sea.

What is suffering?

If I desire to end desire

how can I end desire?

These usual questions.

The wind from the sea blows the lanterns.

The wind from inland blows the lanterns.

The lanterns sway back and forth.

The flames inside them sway.

-Dick Allen
