The one without expectations

#13

bookends it. Finding and losing both
unfasten stars from the sky. Will you give up
this world for the one without expectations?
What thoughts came to you when you
sat cross-legged under that peepal tree?

In my old diary,
dots and crosses flare
like acne and pigtails,
promises pop pink bubbles
at crazy dreams
scampering up
the big peepal tree.
