Waiting for the Tai Chi Teacher

Postby Don Schaeffer » Thu Jun 19, 2014 7:40 pm

Maybe he felt it's like
a marketplace.
as we arrange ourselves there
waiting for the teacher.
We do stand erect and
face forward. We do
pass each other, inspecting.
While we await the teacher
we do hope to be bought.

Maybe he thought
this is what we naturally do.
We've been driven to wallflowerdom
and shyness by such
strong need. We never
assume our value.
We wait to be bought.
Don
