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.
