Meeting with the Buddha

Not for anything in particular —

even me the very Buddha

along with other antiques

they’ve put up for sale

here in Europe,

they have such a sharp eye for business —

what business brings you here?

asks the Buddha

You may not know it

but if you were in Burma

you would surely receive

all kinds of veneration,


telling only untruths and preaching only falsehoods

Your Holiness would exclaim “Buddha!”

and long to flee

Telling untruths

you tire yourself out

on the rounds of births

A scandal to the whole world

the generals delivering all kinds of orders

engaging in all kinds of impropriety

what if they bind you hand and foot

and put you under lock and key?
