Pretty Woman

The pretty woman in tai chi class dressed to the hilt as if she were on her way to a cocktail party. You look so familiar, I say. She looks through me as if I weren't there. So many hours spent at the foot of the Rinpoche. Once she came in late on a hot summer night in a white halter dress giving the Lama and other guys something to not think about.

A snail
at rest on the lips
of Buddha.
