Resistance, by Chris Mansel

Resistance (for Donna Fleischer)

what breeds in isolation
cried the monk
a ground up blade of grass
something to conceal
the darkness
a hawk to besiege
the prayers of a
foolish man
the raining lotus
that falls to the dust
of the floor
kisses of the animal
that on its hind legs
reach the afterlife
