Fifth Selection, August 2012


When the Buddha woke up
to his snoring harem
drooling over their
pretty mouths
the mystery was gone.
This sacred coyote ugly
started it all
The royal escape
to see
the ill
the old
the dead
the holy.
So sometimes we forget
in our rules based on
sin and suffering
that it was
this band of otherly fools
singing at death
shining at darkness
reaching toward
the truth
that woke up our sleeping prince.
