Most people can barely sit through an hour and a half movie -- 2 hours is stretching it. Such is life and death for humans in this current psycho-physical realm. Death comes from the desire for change.

"Fire is whispering the secret in smoke's ear
This aloe's wood loves me
because I help it live out its purpose

With me, it becomes fragrance
and then disappears
altogether

The knots untie
and open into absence
as you do with me,
my friend

Eaten by flame and
smoked out into the sky

This is most fortunate

What's unlucky is not to change
and disappear

The black soil must crumble
to give itself to plants

Think how sperm and egg become
the smiling face and head

Bread must dissolve
to turn into thought . . ."
