Paying Attention with Jim Harrison

In his Zen poetry collection "After Ikkyu," Jim Harrison says:
     "I was writing a poem about paying attention and microwaved a hot dog so hot it burned a beet-red hole in the roof of my mouth."
      As for myself, I was trimming my goatee this morning to show how together I was and I forgot to put the length-guard over the blades and mowed down a swath of whiskers so wide I had to shave the whole thing off.
       Back to the sitting mat.
