poem: gravity




Thich Quang Duc

sat down in Cholon

and burned himself

on a busy street


sat down

doused himself in gasoline

and burned

on a busy street

and people went on

his body charred

about their business



but the world stopped

sitting in flames

a regime tumbled

sit ting


something to nothing

that a people

consumed


might live
