The Kensho Tramps by Bob Rini

The Kensho Tramps have settled in for the night on the edge of nowhere. You may recognize some of these enlightened hobos from your travels, but the dog in the foreground is the late Lily. The snake is unknown, but it might be the proverbial Kundalini serpent, with each coil signifying something, gunas I think, or it might be just a garden variety snake, or even a highly deadly coral snake.  Whatever the case, Lily seems to have it under control.  In Zen, "Kensho" refers to an awakening--a glimpse--seeing through illusion into the true nature of things.
