Nonexistenceby Ayn al-Qozat Hamadani

Original Language Persian/Farsi
is my Rule
in getting lost
|-- from The Drunken Universe: An Anthology of Persian Sufi Poetry, Translated by Peter Lamborn Wilson / Translated by Nasrollah Pourjavady|
I like this terse poem by Hamadani.
A few lines of a wry word game is all it takes to point out how the illusion of separate, individual existence falls away in the deepest realization.
