Robots truly understand nothing

Those seeking perfection

can chant the Heart Sutra

with the Buddha of Kodaiji

 

Searching for wisdom in the

aluminum silicon face

of a robot Bodhisattva

 

But the enlightened

no longer seek to understand

emptiness

for they know

 

A butterfly that lands on the palm

will be crushed

if grasped eagerly

This poem is about: 
Our world
