misanthropic Buddha
by Alison Ross

misanthropic Buddha
eats black balloons for breakfast
drinks cocktails made of storms

Misanthropic buddha
gets his zen on
at 3:04 am
kicks the asses of the stars
that are not aligned
karate chops
the moon

misanthropic buddha
makes love to Dante's corpse
peels the layers of hell off his shoe
haunts Che in his dreams
licks fascism with his tongue

Misanthropic Buddha
gets drunk on skulls
drives a nail through Jesus' eyes
(they bleed static
and he cries)
