詩; poetry

leaving is not self

"have you left your first love?"

“have you left your first love?”

leaving is not self,
first is not mine,
love remedies annoyance,
praise be to quiet places, secluded.

robes of fire enshroud lined water,
mixed with earth, fat and puss.
not even this is worthy of attachment,
and the winds of renunciation carry off

incense on the breeze,
clear remains,
empty,

not even this is worthy of attachment,
and so of these words.
