just like a king

scaffolders cock

God has given us a dark wine so potent

drinking it, we leave the two worlds.

God has put into the form of hashish a power

to deliver the taster from self-consciousness.

God has made sleep so

that it erases every thought.

Drink from the presence of saints,

not from those other jars.

Every object, every being,

is a jar full of delight.


Be a conoisseur,

and taste with caution.

Any wine will get you high.

Judge like a king, and choose the purest,

the ones unadulterated with fear,

or some urgency about “what’s needed.”

Drink the wine that moves you

as a camel moves when it’s been untied,

and is just ambling about Rumi
