For a friend: Dharma Incomplete

There is a man beginning his second night of prison tonight. When the inmates ask what he is in for, he will tell them parole violation and try to change the subject as quickly as possible. It is only a matter of time until they find out, and then he will begin the catechism of life without mercy. I am supposed to wish liberation for him, freedom from his suffering. I wish instead that he has a very long night.
