Touching Nothing You:

ZenPlay In Two Acts

This essay, Touching Nothing You: ZenPlay In Two Acts, is the companion piece to Alone Wiith You.

I am indebted to the master of this cowboy's last roundup who inspired this conversation.




I love you.

In my wild abandoned fully let go oh once more just once more my darling come please come  dreams I reach out to touch you in the night of my life.

You're not there. Instead of you there's nothing where you should be. My searching fingers trail frantic arcs in emptiness hopelessly missing you, weeping with frustration.

But then like magic is Zen. So ... because you're not  there ... here you are ...

I got it.

Now you're all and present and beautiful. First you weren't now you are, and I'm bathed in the warmth of moist joyfulness and privileged passion of your love.
