buddha's finger in a box

Posted to Action Poetry

they found buddha's finger
& put it in a box, it was
hidden for hundred of years
in a cave, the finger swiped
from the funeral pyre where
they burnt his body, oh if
i ever see buddha's finger
on the road to kyoto, i
must surely kill it, that
the least a bodhisattva
can do & anyway without
it how will he fire his
gun right back (bing) at me?
