Buddha Chinaski says

it can’t be ever-
forward

         sometimes
         you have to take
         a step or
         two
         back
re-
         treat

take
         a month
         off

don’t
         do anything
don’t
         want to
         do anything

peace is
         paramount
pace is
         paramount

whatever
         you want
         you aren’t going to
         get
         it by
         over-
trying.

take
         ten years
         off

you’ll
         be
         stronger

take
         twenty years
         off

I’ll
         be
         stronger.

there’s nothing to
         win
         anyhow

and
         remember
         the second best thing in
         the world
         is
         a good night’s
sleep

and
         the best:
         a gentle
death.


meanwhile
         pay your gas
         bill

and
         stay out of
         arguments with
         females on
PMS.
