Between Two Stools

They say you can’t sit between two stools. Isn’t that life?


They say I can’t sit between two stools?
Every stick has two ends,
It’s true, I tend to forget the stick.

What is between two stools,
Between two notes?
Between between between … ?
We are, “Stuck in the middle again,”
Between clowns and jokers,
Between right and left,
Between ‘Yes’ and ‘No,’
Between tension and relaxation,
Between sleep and waking,
Between waking and being,
Between birth and death,
Isn’t this Life?

Is there anywhere else to be?
