Samsara and an Order of Fries

the alternative:
an itinerant circus
where headless chickens
pilot aeroplanes
and kamikaze
into the swollen sides
of whitewashed barns
and people in city traffic
function as belligerent seals
until the moon has a breakdown
and refuses to come out anymore
and every action
no matter how inane
or trivial
is met by the two-party system
of Boos and Applause
Cause and Effect
are thrown out the window
(cue: Canned Laughter).
and other alternatives
as you sit
radically still
for a while.
