POEM: sandbag satori

sandbag satori

I settle like a sandbag onto the zafu
bones finding a resting place
a contented sigh & the smell of sandalwood
I close my eyes as the bell rings

POEM: 4 a.m. (for Douglas Adams)

4 a.m.
for Douglas Adams

I sit like a leg of the cosmic table
propping up my part of
the Whole Sort of General Mish Mash
breath measured
legs in the Burmese position
as the 4 a.m. cars whoosh by the window

POEM: cohabitation

cohabitation

BOOM!
on the cushion while
BANG!
you are, inexplicably
awake
RATTLE!
breathe in, breathe out
TING!
a brief rain shower,
passing car
STOMP!
the bell dings, ending
the morning session
SLAM!
like magic, a bagel & tea
on the table beside me

POEM: the mystic

the mystic

New Balance sneakers, worn soles
Builder’s tea, almond milk, one sugar
Nikon binoculars, Peterson field guide
a biography of Philip Whalen (of course)
all the trappings, none of the Trappist
there’s no “I” in enlightenment
oh wait, there totally is
