Buddha

“If you meet the Buddha in the road, kill him”
–Zen Koan

I never learned
how to understand
Jazz

its
rhythms and rituals

though I might
recognize when
someone sneaks “Stormy Weather”
into a piano solo

by that same token
I never learned
the reasons
for breaking
a sentence
or a phrase

in a poem.

I write what I want
My spacing is my own

and
I have no idols
except for what I put on page
