this marriage will end with

one human leaving the other

by death or other means

it is the only outcome

seven years we have been

married receiving the vow of

bodhisattvas and blessed into

fortunate circumstances

myriad ways incomprehensible

our bodhisattva vows were

fully activated when our

first son was born six years ago

and even more deeply as our

second son was born exactly

four and a half years later

continually illuminating our neurosis

and revealing our perfectly awakened

heart mind and senses we travel

together this extremely fragile vessel

with hearts blazing to be beneficial

dwelling nowhere in particular

we dance the paramitas

generosity discipline patience

exertion meditation and prajna

in the sky-like space without

beginning or end

i love you, jackie

may we continue to

kick ass
