You Should

You should always ask someone if they want the moon or the finger.

(In the future.....I will abbreviate "bumper sticker with BS)

This world of dew
is just a world of dew—
and yet . . . oh and yet . . . .

you should...

go back in history, go as far as you wish,
and select some one who lived
a perfect life,
is there a goal for this selecting?
is to be or to live a perfect life yourself?
as self-instruction in this hidden art,
adopt the ways and styles (the life)
of that perfect one, replace your own life with it...
have you found a perfect way?
a perfect formula or path?
or have you somehow created
a perfect mess?

all of these are possible, wouldn't you agree?
maybe agreeing to all these possibilites (and more) before
window-shopping in past's-perfections
keeps the shopper-holic sane?

i don't know, when it comes to perfect ones,
there have been so many imperfectly written words,
words and lines then imperfectly edited and transalted,
and imperfect meanings found among imperfect symbols
for this now,
which is it's own sort of perfection, isn't it?
be yourself, the real fictional character?

To take all you want
is never as good
as to stop when you should.

You should....
Never accept an offer
you can't refuse.

how to write a truth?
reduce / reuse / recycle
then take out the trash:
skepticism, speculation, conclusions

What do you get when you cross a mafia boss with an Advaita teacher?

An offer you can't understand.

A joke, ANNA, playing on a line from the movie, "The Godfather".
