Jesus and Buddha

Jesus and Buddha
stopped for a beer.

“Half pour of IPA
for me, dear,

and for my friend,
a pint of emptiness.”

    1. I like her map of “Utopia.” Would make a fun (if provincial) board game. But this is stunning: “For all its charms, the island is uninhabited,
      and the faint footprints scattered on its beaches
      turn without exception to the sea.”

  1. So many questions!
    I think I get “A full glass of emptiness” being for Buddha, but Jesus has left me a little perplexed by asking for a “Half pour of IPA”.
    Is this a phonetic puzzle you have dropped here Joe?
