On The Fire Suicides Of The Buddhists

by Charles Bukowski

Charles Bukowski

"They only burn themselves to reach Paradise"
; Mne. Nhu
original courage is good,
motivation be damned,
and if you say they are trained
to feel no pain,
are they
guarenteed this?
is it still not possible
to die for somebody else?
you sophisticates
who lay back and
make statements of explanation,
I have seen the red rose burning
and this means more.
