POEM: "I would enter"

“I would enter” 

                                for Yuhan

I would enter the gate
under the electric wires
and like Han Shan leave
the dust in the road
walk into the mountains
leaving no trace behind
except that I would take
my turtle and my cat
and at night by the fire
we would tell our stories
of reincarnation 

these desperate bids 
to live again
and how maybe
the Buddha got it wrong
