Dwelling Between the Beats by Damian Robin

Dwelling Between the Beats

For Buddhists, Christians, Falun Gong,

and Uyghurs persecuted in China


On stage: no try-out, no rehearsal,

No pretend, it’s real, this show;

Every day’s for sin’s dispersal /

Goods accrual / karmic flow.


Reborn on Earth, dis-junctured ages,

Handed parts of soot and snow /

Repaint-sprayed leaves / rescribbled pages /

Walk-on acts / untimed / full flow /


Pursuit and slashes / fist-face meetings /

Cattle prods / flash / scorch / sound-glow /

There will be more uncharted beatings /

Scheduled chaos blow by blow.

Throughout irregular repeatings,

Higher beings watch, they know.
