Buddha & I

They came pouring
with labels 
accusatory looks
jibes
raised eyebrows
poison-tipped words
the Buddha 
in the beating lotus
awakens
smiles
holds me tight
repeats
-let it go.
I pity the anguish
I forgive their spite
The palm carrying a burning coal for me
must be burning inside
Shanti! 
Shanti!
Shanti!
I lean over 
to a smiling child
a cup of tea
and pray for the
fanged tribe.
