Read Poem: COUNTLESS CINEMAS, by Michael McLaughlin

the yogacara speak
of a form of consciousness

where all the seeds
of past deeds
are deposited.

one by one these seeds
come to fruition
simultaneously

creating a person
and a private world.

a universe of closet sized cinemas
each occupied by a single person

eternally viewing a different film.

everything is of the nature of consciousness

the product of one’s own projections.

ignorance and suffering
believe the yogacara
result from feeling
the movie to be real.
