Rhinocerus fan soup

(This piece was inspired after reading about the Zen kaon referred to as “Bring me the Rhinoceros!”  in a book about how to allow Zen koans (and they’re strangeness) to work on your mind to help you open up to the mystery of the Truth. It is a bit of a jig on that Zen master’s masterful stroke. I hope it makes you smile and wonder.)

a broth made of your emotions.

Add chopped onions to broth; simmer.

When done, pour into delicate porcelain bowl, white, painted with little blue flowers.

Now, dip rhinoceros.
