Kabir

1440 - 1518 / Pratapgar, Uttar Pradesh, India

His Death In Benares

His death in Benares
Won't save the assassin
From certain hell,

Any more than a dip
In the Ganges will send
Frogs—or you—to paradise.

My home, says Kabir,
Is where there's no day, no night,
And no holy book in sight

To squat on our lives.
