A Poem


by Lauren Marie Cappello








Since there is no difference

between self & sky, do you

spend the coffee cup hours

admiring our vastness?


Citrus, no difference, between

hand, face, flower.


Yr collarbone, open fields of

obsidian marigolds.










Lauren Marie Cappello explores the idea of non-duality, in her life and in her poetics.  * Sambhogakāya — Sanskrit for “body of enjoyment.”  Sambhogakāya has also been translated as “deity dimension,” “body of bliss” and “astral body.”
