True Story

Howitzer shells
hammered into bells
by the coconut monks
of the Mekong delta –
enlightened buddhists
who obviously knew
which way is up
and understood too
that old Jewish business
about ploughshares.
One monk wore a crucifix
around his neck
indicating he also knew
where Eden lay buried.
