the Buddha beneath the bridge

i forget his names now
though we have often talked
in different places

he lived beneath the bridges
where he kept his stuff
he couldn’t carry on his back
which wasn’t much

he never asked for anything
nor carried a sign
only desiring for his body
the change that other spirits
would not easily miss

some spare change
some food

funny that some spirits
could not even spare that
