Welcome to the Realm (US election day 2014)


could be god realm
or jealous god realm,

experience to know.

but it's one or
the other
for sure.

and riches and
Alexander would envy.

Good luck to
all of them,
In the realm
of the Elect.

For Izzah


golden streams
of light and warmth,
lapis buddah beaming
tadyata mantras
fire's wrathful flames
of compassion
water modulating high-amp
yogini vibrations

get well soon,
and we'll go shopping.

Autumn in New York


staying with the feeling
is revolutionary

in all ways

reality does
yoga headstand

which always looks
kind of odd

in any context.

the feeling
is illusory

and impermanent,

not judging,
approaching or

staying with the feeling
with no rushing towards

or running away

purely revolutionary

(a reminder to myself
to maintain solidarity
with all existence.)

Auld Manhattoe

(click pic to enlarge)
(credit: Gisela Fabian 1943 - 2004.
Description: New York Fantasy
Year: 1978
Dimension: 24"x30")

After all these years
still bathed in
Times Square Neon
in early weekday

Moods of Auld Manhattoe
never can be denied

Roaring subways
still roar even
with strange
electric trains
singing eerie dissonant
electronic whistle
of revving up to
go down the track

Clocks in the 
subway cars and
notifications of
where you have

Good for a laugh
when computer gets
bollixed and
you see the wrong
next stop announced
in red lit letters

So I don't need a watch
at least not on the train

Bergdorf's still standing
in new Millenium
along with Henri Bendel.
Going farther East
is upstart Barneys
where retail desire
goes utterly insane

Many chain restaurants
of various ethnic
foods to be eaten
by Midtown worker bees,
even wealthy ones.

But still the steam tables
which lure with
endless choices,

Broadway booms
with billion dollar
on its narrow lane,
where getting
a post-show taxi or any
kind of ride
is problematic.

I already know
what is going to happen.
I'll live and then
I'll die, with stuff
in between

stuff being appearances
like magic lantern Plato show,
appearances to all
the senses,

infinite opportunities
to act freely
within this

how better to
gain the good fortune
of compassion
for all
sentient beings

than by acting
as tho hours being
patient with

seems like
only a flickering

compared to
the blazing fire
of desire
to benefit

A Taste

"just a small offering,"
the New York City
local gods observe

big or small
I got nothing

tho having received
endless treasure

the spark doesn't
