knife

Misplace unlearn become a rabbit
another sacred vessel for
the sounds unheard by angels running
through nonexistent forests
a hollow book that can
be opened only with a knife

  1. constantly the isolation chamber
    even when you’re outside the plastic tube
    I find it difficult to connect with you
    there’s “you” and “me”—-on opposite sides
    no matter how close you come in the boat
    you hint about the river
    you hint about D. (lady death)
    “carrying you through”
    “carrying you to the other side”
    and then you mention angels running
    and Baby Bird, there’s no where to run in heaven

  2. EVERY DAY YOU DRESS UP TO BE YOU
    your spilled words are often misinterpreted
    all that teary-eyed sentimentality
    Baby Bird wanting attention
    you can hold my hand
    while the guy with the camera
    takes your likeness
    YOUR TRUE SELF

    • you think too much about the true self
      but the fact is, the Buddha was expelled from India just after he had divulged the greatest secret of the priestly caste which was only hinted at in the Upanishads
      guess what it was

      anyway my false self is telling me that i can afford sentimentality

  3. all those black girls who sing on TV
    they say that old coot Buddha
    he be living on the street
    he be wearing a wig for a hat
    his mother is a waitress in Hades
    famous for a simple quote
    “YOU LOOK LIKE I FEEL INSIDE”
