Not Quite a Koan




Writing a poem’s like doing


Origami bending the paper


To your will not with fingers


But w/ink fashioning a some


Thing out of a minute ago


Nothing a brief bit of time


Out of a life unaware of how


Little is left / leaving behind


More than a pool of fear


Inspired piss or violence


Inflicted blood more than


The vomit of late night’s


Revelry or the tears of a


Much dreaded diagnosis


Almost as much as a stain


On a sheet where love had


Recently lain & wallowed


In the shadow of Zen
