read between the lines

stop me if you’ve heard this one before

there’s someone speaking into your left ear

a zen master walks into a bar

the words are completely familiar

the bartender asks what he wants to drink

but in a language you don’t understand

the zen master says “make me one with everything”

it is the sound of rain

the bartender takes a twenty from the master

from a cloudless sky

the master says “where’s my change?”

spoken by a silent tongue

the bartender says “change comes from within”

using the words we were left with
