2010's First Philosopher, Guru And Mystic Du Jour by Paul F. Etcheverry

Rescued from moldy, disgusting scrolls, the following recently discovered quotations from painfully and justifiably obscure poet (and goat parking attendant to 13th century Sufis) Joey Al-Donnie Roomie:

“The lion is most handsome when looking for food, as long as dinner doesn't resemble me."

"Burdens are the foundations of excruciating lower back disease and bitter chocolates the forerunners of pleasure."

"And when I die again, I will soar past the angels to places that accept coupons."

"Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other at Jalil al-Ascuaga's Desert Inn later that night."

"Everyone is so afraid of death, but the real sufis just laugh, mostly at all the stupid shits around them."

"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a parking lot. I will meet you there - if it's still open and I can find where the fuck it is.”

"You already have the precious mixture that will make you well. Now give it to me."

"Don't grieve. Anything you lose comes round and then irritates the shit out of you in another form."

“Now I am sober and there's only the hangover and the memory of Jalil al-Ascuaga's Desert Inn .”

"In silence there is eloquence. So shut the fuck up."

Important work is being done here. Now go wash the remains of those filthy scrolls off your hands. I especially like the comment about lovers.

Still hoping to find a Jalil Al-Ascuaga's Desert Inn in Tucson or Flagstaff.
