  • The Flying Pope meets Neon Buddha
     
    the flying pope
    and the neon buddha
    back to back
     
    in his quiet moments
    the flying pope becomes
    a neon buddha
     
    killing
    a neon buddha
    the flying pope
     
    attainable 
    only through the flying pope
    neon buddha-hood
     
    stripped of kigo
    the neon buddha becomes
    a flying pope
     
    from time to time
    the flying pope circles 
    the neon buddha
     
    the pope flying
    a neon buddha
    at half mast
     
    flying in the face of reason
    the pope's neon buddha-hood
     
    into a grain of sand
    the flying pope projects
    a neon buddha
     
    the flying pope
    with outstretched arms
    to the neon buddha
