When the Lotus Sings - a textual pastiche by T Newfields

Mahal: (sighing) It is refreshing to find words free of meaning. . .
Rinzen: (responding in sign language) Too much "meaning"
creates a sort of a sort of intellectual strait-jacket, doesn't it?

Sin el fango,
no pueden nacer las flores.
Lo que parece humildeo sucio este día
contiene semillas preciosas.
