At a Bonfire Off-campus

she speaks of her immaculate journey,
of destiny and more abstract concepts
while drinking wine from a box, her fingers
unconsciously twirling stray strands of blonde
highlighted naturally by sun and surf.
it’s all about breath and presence, she says,
focused attention and the liberty of
discipline honed by practice, and it must
be a deliberate practice to remain
potent toward the enlightenment journey,
that bright odyssey into full knowing
and the dissipation of illusion . . .
later, she speaks of immortality,
reincarnation as recycling of souls.
