Scales of the dragon

When doing zazen
Sit for 6 years
Like the Buddha
Even when you only sit for 10 minutes

Sitting without beginning or end
Only fathomless depth.
A thought arises in eternity:
'I hope we finish soon -
I need to go to the toilet'

As we sit
100 people walk past the door
Talking loudly
Slamming doors.
Scales of the dragon!
