Ocean MiserDrowning in a sea of thoughtsOcean Miser by Velikorossiya
Sinking into the din
Mind is like choppy waters
Your opinions the pen they keep me in.
I can feel it lurking, just beneath the surface
That knowing that can't be unknown
That opinion that can't take purchase
My heart is empty,
Am I worthless?
But that's alright
At least it won't
Weigh me down tonight
Just-As-It-Is: The Dude Sutra 3: 1-4Just-As-It-Is: The Dude Sutra 3: 1-4 by Velikorossiya
Misfortune befalls the fool,
Who becomes attached to the rug.
Like Donny's ashes thrown against the wind,
Karma returns to bare its fruit.
In seeking recompense,
The Dude becomes entangled.
In time one learns;
They could just be sitting at home
With pee stains on their rug.

Go with the flow, even while standing still.
For the path of taking it easy is difficult.
The ground one treads hard,
But in time one's foot calluses.
And such pains recede beyond notice.
In this way, taking it easy
Becomes a path of silk
For one who avoids uptight thinking,
And walks the path in earnest.

The more I learn,
The more clearly I can see the fool in me.
The more I learn to let go,
The more clearly I can see the Dude in me.
Phenomenal reality is a rug.
Be wary of its color,
Tinted by the lens of your outlook.
Maybe if you let it go
No one can take it from you
Nor micturate upon it.
For it is your clinging to the rug
That causes such distresses.
Black FridayPredictable crows picking bones for marrow,
What do they care for but themselves?
The paranoid parasites.
Always slaving for a free meal.
The only happy face at a funeral!
Never one to reckon with Time
Even in this deep depression.
Those two crows disregard the newcomer
Waterlogged as she may be
Only three bones remain
Too few for the third decide the two
Hell arises in their eyes
Requiem, their call
Early in the morning
Expunging third of all
If you must know, I am a bastard. And you will be the Death of me.|
