Noble Truth

  If I were to condense my frustrations into a sutra I might use, this human birth don’t suit ya, or maybe, I think therefore I suffer, or how about, meditation means removing the buffer –   you can take one or all of them as I go on flipping through happiness and pain like …

Beholden

  What is in a “thing?” – heartbeat or not – even inert matter holds sway over our emotions and our thoughts – wrapped up in memories, glimmers of truth and lies, our compromised realities reflecting treasured ties – so, what is in a “thing?” heartbeat or not, does it exist before we see it, …

Intent on the Dream

  Longing for freedom but grasping illusions – the usual faces placate my confusions – growing nauseous from the constant delirium of trauma that follows from how I run to more drama, and so I keep knocking on those doors of my past in search of a joy that was not there before, disregarding I …

Dreams

For the Children

How do we fight when words are not enough and decency is not a universal imperative, just something to divide those who can get things done from those who are outdated, when the idea of God is dead to most, and the idea of being good for good’s sake is not a philosophy remembered? – …
