Poetry. New work by this well-known Bay Area writer and Zen teacher. "It's freezing at degree zero, wind bites -/ The crystal arguments fall into taller shapes/ And the tension around the eyes lengthens/ At the end of every turn around the park/ 'Kick Me' is a sign everyone wears" (from "The Enigma of Memory"). Among the many books by Norman Fischer available from SPD are SUCCESS and PRECISELY THE POINT BEING MADE.
