the other day i was meditating,
well i was pretending to meditate
i wasn't quite ready to greet the day
i thought maybe if i pretended it wouldn't come
all i could picture
was a raccoon
with a care bears t-shirt on
but like in a cool way
and i acknowledged the thought
and waited for him to drift away
but then i thought
what if this is enlightenment?
i wouldn't know
what if this cool dude is here
to congratulate me on being
excellent at meditation
i had fooled him with my pretending too
then of course the sun came up
and magic like that
tends to disappear in the daylight
the sun came up and i was not ready
and i did not have my enlightened raccoon
but i knew i had to keep moving
well, i knew i would keep moving
with or without enlightenment
or a raccoon in a t-shirt
with a beloved childrens cartoon on it
the sun came up

Another poetic gem from the brilliant mind of River! I really hope enlightenment does come in the form of a raccoon in a Care Bears tee! Anything else will feel lacking now haha.
