FIRST THOUGHT BEST THOUGHT, 108 POEMS
1018 SPRUCE STREET (AND K.A.) by Chogyam Trungpa
So passionate
That your lips are quivering
So angry
That your blood is boiling
So stupid
That you lost track of your nose
So much so
In this world of so-so
So much
Therefore so little
So little
So great
Just so
The beauty lies in
A rose petal
Just touched by
Melting morning dew
Beauty lies in
Dragonflies
With their double wings
Buzzing neatly
As if they were stationary
Beauty lies in
Majestic shoe
That sits diligently
While the meditators
Torture themselves
In a restless shiver
So right
Norwegian girl
With her occasional professorial look
Dancing with the typewriter
Wife-ing
Just so
With her lukewarm iron
How titillating
(This ticklish world)
Just so.

If you're going to tickle me
Be gentle
Be so precise
So that
I could be amused
But
Wouldn't get hurt
By your clawing
But titillating enough
To stimulate
My system
With your feminine
Healthy shiny
Well-trimmed nail
Just so.

The trees
Grow
Just so
Baby ducks
Learn to float
Just so
Mosquitoes' beaks
Well-made
Just so
Oh you Norwegian girl
Do you know how many warts
On a toad's back?
How many wrinkles
On granddad's forehead?
How many deals
Steve Roth has made?
Nothing to worry
Everything is
Just so
Doesn't quite hurt
But sometimes
Painfully ticklish.

28 July  1975
