“Don’t wait.”

Drawn to his commanding grand peculiarity,
we hailed the man:
“What should we understand?”
With lips so widely stretched
they'd permanently etched a dimple, he began.

“The principle is simple.
Expecting anything is ill-advised.
Existence has already been devised.
You aren’t early and you can’t be late.
It’s right to hate to wait! Don’t wait.

There is no waiting. Nothing is increasing
or abating. Nothing’s far or near.
The whole thing’s so voluminously here
that once you notice it you can’t stop grinning.”
He grinned so much it seemed like sinning.
