Jesus said Don’t

try to draw me into an argument
about whether fairies can be saved: 

There are in fact dumb questions. 

A student asked Shri Mahayogi 
When will Maitreya come? 

Mahayogi asked for pencil and paper,
wrote a One, then covered the rest of the page
with Zeroes. He studied the Zeroes, erased
a few, asked for the Very Large Number 

to be passed back to the student. 

Long time, he said. Long lonely time. Don’t wait.
