RICE PAPER COVERS ROCK?
(2/8/13)


I spend
some time
reading
the Buddhist
tracts

I understand
them
for the most
part

when sitting
alone
in a barely
illuminated
room
the concepts
convey many
certain truths

the metaphysics
give me
some comfort
and solace
in this unpredictable
world

but as soon
as I leave
the house
to deal
with the fray
of the day
the physics
of reality
come
to bear
once again

a head
banged
on a door frame
still hurts
like Hell
