The Last Supper



So voracious is
The beast of Empire
That after its seed is sown,
It must engollop all peoples,
Leading to a final
Feast on its own.

Upali’s Verse



Of the wise one, free of delusion,
Of the broken pillar, the conquered conqueror,
Of the untroubled one with harmonious mind,
Of the one with mature virtue and excellent wisdom,
Of the one who sees past appearance and is stainless,
Of that Blessed One, I am a disciple.
