Samsara Wicker Basket

Looking for corners
in this mandala labyrinth
lactose intolerant
looking for a wheel of cheese
looking for linear answers
in a samsara wicker basket
flatlining beneath floorboards
cobwebs in thought trains
keychains and souvenir shot glasses
from teardrop oases
bar charts stale from cigar smoke
scurry to the next bear trap
elastic lifelines snapping
from spilled açaí berries
colons cleansed yet mind
still peeps through locker rooms

this dirt is innate
this dirt is not meant to wash
away down holy drains
