Book of the Dead

Did I allow an affinity for suffering

To calcify or mitigate?

*

Will I hunger indefinitely

Like a ravaged ghost?

Or will I find in death

Both coherence and communion?

A soul subservient

To neither Mara nor ID

A soul free of preference

And illusion

*

All these faces

I have worn

Both monster and God

They are but incarnations

Of the same entity

*

If in the path of delirium

I come to know

My Buddha nature

Will I banish all construct

And reemerge divine?

*

I painted this picture of the after life
