Non-Oriental Needle for Sitting-Zen

Not becoming;

Helpless -- possessing no secret art by which

to do an undoing,

Nor any nail to fix down non-movement.

Not pulling in the chin, Japanese-style.

And yet deciding.

Whole body knowing: "Not that!";

Buddha is Sitting, still.

Buddha

IS

Sitting

Still.
