Fast Day 261 June 2 2012 {God Speed The Plow}





God Speed The Plow


I am the Buddha, Buddha  of Bamiyan
and I am fully cooked,
in marinade Afghanistan…
being re-incarnated
fast ‘s any man…
into Kabul Smokey Joe
who kick the gong…
stepped on a land mine:
Smokey Joe is legless now,
Cokey Joe is fine…
legless in Bamiyan.

I am the Buddha, Buddha of Bamiyan
and I was much destroying
by the Taliban…
but that don’t stop me,
I just go downtown
get me an old .44
from young dead Man;
Smokey Joe is legless
but I got my head
got it together… in Bamiyan!

Now you see me! Now I not there!
Bamiyan boddhi sleeper
vanish into air!
like a hermit praying
back in his lair;
get me my pick-em-up truck
search high and low
Buddha Joe is legless now-
ain’t that always so?
legless in Bamiyan!

notes

The Plow is a metaphor for the Crutch.

Bamiyan - site of the great statues of the Lord Buddha destroyed by the Taliban 

There are references to the Opium in Afghanistan and its effects.

Are you familiar with the photography of Steve McCurry's photography? He's a National Geographic photographer who focuses on people in Afghanistan and other loci of war. His work is heartbreaking (I really don't mean to push yours further in that direction), but with so much heart and connection, I somehow feel uplifted after studying it. Here's his blog:

Hi, Tex.

I forgot that you were an alarmist.

Alarm monitoring is the need of an hour whether or not you go out quite often. We might move out of our home for a weekend picnic or friends gathering and to make your home safe alarm monitoring security system Raleigh NC is required.
