poem by Anselm Hollo (1934 - 2013)

Buffalo Limited Edition Fortune Cookie

Comrade Lenin's watch: always ten minutes fast
Señor Buddha had no watch at all
 just sat there watching the sky evolve
he too gone now like Mr. Edward Hopper
and yesterday's grasshopper
         so do not ask for whom the car honks
watch out for that bicyclist whirring near
 early & late     
remember those whom you hold dear
