the first two
are the offspring of the third
but please tell me:
who desires, or doesn’t desire?
who is discontented, or contented?
who is deluded or enlightened?
this is not a trick question
I cannot find this ‘who’.

I already did! Desire is the mother (the root cause) of creation, according to an ancient Hindu doctrine. Unavoidably – one must acknowledge – delusion is part of the fabric, if not the whole garment. What is Maya, if not?
it’s not ‘or’, it’s ‘and’ … it’s me, it’s me; I did it. And I’m sorry.
