Buddhist Funeral

For Greg Bechle

 

Prayers like bees

Emulating the crossing over.

Pine shavings burned

On charcoal disks.

Shin-do: Of the Heart and Mind.

 

After the ceremony,

An 81 year old woman with one leg

I’m pushing in a wheelchair up a stony hill.

She hands me a cigarette,

And lights one for herself.

 

Truth. Crossing over.

Of the heart and mind.
