Post-Digital Buddhahood

a single millisecond of pure
watchfulness, and all the hell starts
to break loose. a psychic
quake shakes your polymer-sheaths
revealing the voids beneath
your bones and dust. a pure
violence consumes you

and everything goes disconnected
like the cantor’s dust. no matter how deep
you zoom in, there are these
pockets of unknown mysteriously fitting
between your every self-affirmed
reality-checks; the same way
those cold galactic voids,
tessellate our telescopic comfort-zones
of pulsars and colored Jupiters.

but you can’t take a selfie
of your soul, and see where you
need to filter your scars. so i make

home for my boolean digits, between
me and my thousand buddhahoods.

unborn, yet with thousand faces.
deathless, yet murdered each moment.
