Log Cabin Chronicles

meditation: what's it like?

STANLEY FEFFERMAN

1

it's like sitting
on a blowtorch

in the rain
and the rainbow

while air drinks
her lovely juices

and to yellow
goes the green

2

it's like
the Buddha
sitting here
watching his mind
fill
with scene
after scene
of all the stupid things
you and your friends
ever did
or said

3

three hundred meditators
bowing and scraping through
Oriyoki lunch

one stops chewing

rain on the shrine-tent
