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
