A Poem from my upcoming Easing into the Dhammapada Book


A mob has been seeded into Facebook posts,

with words like

They and Them and Him and Her,

soundbite micro-realities mixing

with the rush of false intuitions,

illusions heated in little silver children’s spoons,

the flames media-fed and blue-screen hot.

Shot

mainline

and thundering

word by word by word

full color aura

into the pupils of millions of eyes.

Ignorance.

Addictive.

Multiplied.
