Zen Grass

Grass Grows Up Three Inches


“Grass grows up three inches,”

how about that?


“At midnight in the mountains,

the donkey’s cry is very noisy,”

how about that?


Monkeys like bananas,

horses like apples,”

how about that?


“The train goes down the tracks,

the bus goes down the road,”

how about that?


Did you ever realize

there are things so simple

they can never be quite realized?


Blake’s Songs of Innocence,

Creeley’s “I Know a Man,”

how about that?


-Dick Allen
