Dogen and The Doctor, drunk at a Buddhist wedding

“I see a tree.”					

“A tree is a man-seeing-trees,				
when the treeing sees are man-ing,
when the man-ing tree sees seeing.”

“A man seeing tree-things?”				

“A tree-thinging man 
sings.”				

“A man treeing see-things?”			

“A man seeing trees						
but not treeing sees
sees nothing.”				

“A tree-thing?”							

“A see-thing.”								

“Aah, but not The thing.”		

“I see a tree.”
