‘Let go into the clear light’

Bardo Thodol,  ‘Tibetan Book of the Dead”, 8th-14th century

***********

vulture-offering,

the treasured carcass,

take it to the sky, piece

by piece,

cut it, pound it,

release it,

shimmering, raw

set it free, piece

by piece,

to an infinite space,

resplendent,

incandescent,

consumed by rainbows
