The Flagship of Anti-Poetry — est. 2010

Bodhisattva Curse

Author's Note: Some hard-liners may take this Anti-Poem's message / title a little too seriously, but it's rather tongue-in-cheek, since Bodhisattvas are higher beings who give everyone else inexhaustible compassion and are therefore incapable of pronouncing such curses. However, true Tantrikas can balance on either edge of truth's sword.

Bodhisattva Curse

Itinerant little automatons,
rolled fresh off an assembly line
with a billion more behind:

You will wander all six Bardos until this universe collapses
and be amongst the last sentients to cross the ocean of conditioned existence
unto supreme Parinirvana.

Dream lives of untold shame and sorrow
Final memory at birth, first one following tomorrow...

  • Déjà vu
  • Eternal Recurrence
  • False Awakenings
  • Moebius
  • Ouroboros
  • Tabula Rasa
Death and Rebirth everlasting.

Reverberate toward Stillness — or you simply won't stand a chance!
