by Monique Choy

A few lives
before reaching enlightenment
Buddha was Prince Fiveweapons
pumped with hot chilli bully juice

he growled at danger,
pulled monsters’ tails
and carried a lightning bolt within his heart

In later eons
he mellowed right out
becoming, in fact,
quite famous for it.
In other words, you don’t have to do everything at once.
