when two cats part ways
the road that runs between them
is the middle path

cats that wear big hats
contemplating nirvana
feel no pain nor rain

mirror says to cat -
my friend, you are emptiness
cat fades to cheshire

cat says to mirror -
mirror, i have a black heart
mirror paints it blue

wise bhikkhu walked
looking for jellicle cats
wisdom ate the moon

some cats meditate
to learn of impermanence
from the mice they kill

cats that eat maya
enlightened by all darkness
rise to feel all love

time wears a long coat
with many big deep pockets
kittens nest in each

eight-fold path of life
internalised in the ninth -
buddha-life, feline
