Bodhisattva by Sarah Arvio


Bodhisattva 

The new news is I love you my nudist
the new news is I love you my buddhist
my naked body and budding pleasure
in the weather of your presence
Not whether your presence but how
Oh love a new nodule of neurosis
a posy of new roses proposing
a new era for us nobis pacem
Oh my bodhisattva of new roses
you’ve saved me from my no-love neurosis
You’ve saved my old body from the fatwa
Let’s lie down in a bed of roses
a pocketful that rings round the rosy 
If this is the end of the world my love 
let’s fall down in bed and die 
Let’s give a new nod to nothing 
Let’s give a rosebud to nothing at all 
How I love the new roses of nothing 
Oh my bodhisattva of nothing 
boding I hope no news but this 
For our bodies and souls I hope nothing 
but the weather of us in our peace
