Dear Diary, 

Today, I began my first day as a working class deity. 
Sigh, I never thought it would come to this. 

That I, Avalokiteshvara, the Holder of the Lotus and 
the Lord of the World, as mortals call me, would need
a job, but then, this is New York, and the cost of

living is ridiculous

So, for hours, I 

stood near the entrance          of Yellow Rat Bastard

watching young men in

too tight jeans come in

and out. I'  ve come to          the conclusion that

either people never never

shoplift or my 1,000         hands and eleven heads

make them think twice

my feet are killing me.

If only, I had a dozen         feet, too, to constantly

shift my weight. I  'd be perfect at this job.
Anyway need some rest.

Peace, compassion, and faith, 

Avalokiteshvara

"It's kind of an punk inside joke. It seems like in most circles I have been around, everyone has a story about scabies, hitchhiking woes, dumpster diving horror stories, or problems crossing the Canadian border."
