Homage To Guru Rinpoche
“Space beyond the complexity of things & names”
A la Guru Rinpoche, heads stacked on trident.
You’re defeated before you walk in the door
Because who exists to fight with?
Neighborhood dogs erupt in the darkness.
Here we see a monk reciting a text
& here Kali with your head on a stick.
What state of intention leaves
Its footprints burned in living rock?
“Don’t invest reality with identity.”
Sealed in a cave,
He turns the world inside out,
Point of a three-bladed dagger
Puncturing the domiciles of ghosts,
While rainbow-hued flowers fall through stone.
