don't know why I keep doing this
if I can barely understand myself
what value could I possibly have for others?
or am I the clown entangled in his own
payback and is condemned to play the fool
until he understands exactly what a fool signifies
wisdom in gaudy off-putting garb
wisdom in koans that reveal the need to press on?
