Even


When
Aziz Ansari
references
Lemonade
it means
he is a cherished supporter
of anyone with a thirst
for something
that tastes
just a little bit better.
just a little bit better
is all you need
to feel new
just a little bit better is all
she needs to know
that even Rupert Murdoch
can get lucky
while she walks on
the gala carpet alone and free
but even
Jerry Hall knows that
twitter too
does not last
forever
and then we revisit Trump
supposedly the bump
that throws all
the hump
that everyone can get over
but alas
every jack in the box
must have his day
and her day
will not always seem to be tomorrow
so while we wait
let’s remember
that anyone with thirst
will be cherished
and supported
as long as the air stays
moist with anticipation
of a meltdown
to the ground
no hope left untravelled
unborn
or forgotten

Beyonce Says


Beyonce says
Intuition
Denial
Anger
Apathy
Emptiness
Accountability
Reformation
Forgiveness
Resurrection
Hope
Redemption
but I think it’s
denial first
and then there are no stages
as such
just
forgiveness
since
we all who keep going
in it
are going in it
because
we’ve forgiven them
even if we won’t admit it
what allows you to keep going
other than
acceptance
denial is real
but it does not kill you
unless
you kill yourself
at which point
you’ll have to admit
that you never forgave
your injurer
you let them be stronger
than you
and then there is
no Lemonade
you’re just dying
of thirst

Naked or Burned

363 wings in 30 minutes
Molly said
Choje Akong is dead
Miley Cyrus naked again
Young wives in Afghanistan stand and burn
Monks the same
Dalai Lama laughs
Lhasang Tsering screams
my right
to sanity
is in that Nike Store
so monks storm it
like Detroit
‘too much enthusiasm
too much emotion’
Dalai Lama says
again
ethnic Chinese
become the majority
is still the majority everywhere
in the world
in Tibet
Genghis Khan would like
Rihanna
dances
more than fights
pacifism is a gift
unknown to those who flaunt it
Miley is naked again
You can’t resist what you don’t know
Give it away to a stranger
who may
or
may not
believe
You play polo
with the soldiers who pretend
to be monks
pacifism is an art
carved into
altruistic grains
of rice and men
Miley’s naked again
Beyonce
is not too far behind
we play games
with impermanence
shooting to kill
at will
Singing is a higher power than
Gods know
Gods blow
chances to forgive and forget
paid debt gets me from samsara
to nervy nirvana
So I run
18,000 feet to the Tibetan plateau
and When a dog chases me
I face it
the Moustache Brothers know no other way
but to laugh
is never a mistake
Afraid to die is dying twice he said,
hit on the head
Burma=Myanmar I guess
6 million Tibetans screaming ‘walk’
Jesus was a pacifist
Ani Pachen told me
whether you win
or lose
it’s not about the game
it’s about you
acting like her mother
Now she has two
broken legs
carry her into the water so she can
float
after that man
raped
that woman
raped
baboons the same
maybe if she sneaks out with a rifle
she will be mistaken for a guard
maybe if she sneaks out
she will be mistaken
for a pacifist
peace only
exists
in the mind
so open it
Miley puts clothes on and becomes
a body with clothes
cremated on stage
a thinking on display
is not action
only naked people
get a sky burial
nothing to waste
neglecting ourselves
for the good of humankind
is a balance
no man
has ever mastered
that’s why
Miley is naked again
trying to excite me
‘i’m naked but you can’t have me’
is the definition
of freedom
and everyone else waits
for everyone else to stop
and think about it
