Hungry Ghost

All fire burns;
it/s the color the flame

Everyone burning
different;
somehow,
the same

The blue is our passion

Its fruit is sadness

Sickness exposed
by social impurity

Surfaces systems
on us imposed

Supplicating servants

Denied devotees

Prayers unanswered

The jaded wandering

A wilderness of madness

Stay searching
for the Promised Land

We hear of it
though never achieved

Curse of Moses
begins a dream

Systems-symbols-symptoms
witnessed

Can/t sew shut these eyes

Never surrender
completely

Pay a buck
kneel down to pray
when you can/t
catch the breath to cry.
