knee-capped at Chenrezig


it was really rather auspicious:

on the eve of a new year, while
holed up at a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery
Life knee-capped Itself

L was brought to her knees
crippled, dis-abled, humbled

the scene was set:

she could only sit.

and sit, and sit and sit

with now, with this, with here

and one day the ‘with’ disappeared
