dancing in the park

the old fella

doing the moves

in those kung fu shoes

tai chi with the ladies

talking later

on zen enlightenment:

fetch water

sweep the room

& we got to meet again

when I dropped in

to the black cat café

there he was

zipping between the customers

black tray held high

in the same kung fu shoes

you work here? I asked

thought you were a tai chi teacher?

oh yes he says I teach that

is my passion my thing

here pays my gas bill

landlord for my rooms

y’know: fetch the water

push the broom

he grinned at that

& lifting the tray

set off around the room
