buddha day 32; departures

15 Jan

young monks came to understand sanskrit very well.
buddha welcomed their self importance for he knew
they would soon flee
and sure enough,
an emptiness came over the young monks
and they wandered into the valley of visceral.

buddha was there for the great send off,
hopping on one foot
round an imaginary circle,
smiling and singing,
“new new new;”
a different tone for each monk.
