Zen Death Poems and Other Stories is an anthology of plays, stories, and a small amount of poetry, each with its own humorous slant on the human condition that ranges from absurd to jocular to satirical. Zen Death Poems and Other Stories may not present the ultimate truth per se, but it will prod the reader to go looking with a smile and a chuckle. Delving into metaphysical mysticism and practical reality in equal measure, Zen Death Poems and Other Stories offers a unique and amusing perspective for readers of all background and experience levels in the workings of zen, philosophy and consciousness. "Calliope, oh milk my Cheerios / Sugar my Wheaties, and don't forget my spoon, / So I may tell of the tremendous blows / On the gods' souls before the deadline at noon."
