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.



Kathmandu, Nepal
