Statue of Buddha

Statue of Buddha

Frannie Z

 

In Thailand and Burma

and once, Afghanistan.

Here and now, on top

of an old CD shelf.

.

He raises generous arms,

greets this present world

and perhaps worlds beyond.

 

Next to the CD shelf

is a large bookcase.

From his pedestal

Buddha radiates the good cheer

that accrues from mild liquor,

fond reading

and the virtue

of not believing

in certainties.
