Ah, You Have Yin

 

“Ah, you have Yin and Yang,”

the Zen Master said,

holding up our salt and pepper shakers,

his maniac glee

getting the best of him.

“I like them both on eggs

and also potatoes.

Sometimes a thing, you know,

is only a thing.

The insides, I mean:

what shakes out,

the shaken inside the shakers,”

our Zen Master said.
