Fave Poem of the Day

I love the use of humour in this poem. Goodness, what are we doing having such a rollicking time in the 21st pop century? Fun.

Buddhist Barbie
by Denise Duhamel

In the 5th century B.C.
an Indian philosopher
Gautama teaches "All is emptiness"
and "There is no self."
In the 20th century A.D.
Barbie agrees, but wonders how a man
with such a belly could pose,
smiling, and without a shirt.
