"Mandala" by Ross Balcom

The helicopter descends,
its blades a whirling mandala

decapitating Buddhas,
making their heads fly.

I treasure the Dharma;
I have followed it forever.

My head is beautiful;
they call it the Great Lotus.

Smiling, I thrust it into

eternity's whirling blades.

--Ross Balcom

Poet's Notes: Decapitation is the ultimate liberation. Lose your head.
