Shiva Temple

flags waving
men shouting
tall prayer towers leaning over
about to fall

women will colored decorations on their heads
dancers following dressed in gold
and then the black boar
with white tusks

the lord and creator of dance
moves in a circle of fire
where everything that can burn
is burned away
and all that is left
is that which cannot be consumed
by fire
even though it is always aflame

he asks us to destroy
all memory and loss
and dance with him
in the blazing brilliance
of emptiness
and space
