.—the act of gazing vacantly into the distance
    without thinking (Japanese)




suddenly you become aware
you’re in a neutral state
caught in a waking dream,
but not quite

utterly held, afraid to move
for fear the moment will be ended
like a switchedoff light

circumference of it boundless
center of it here
reference of it groundless
isness of it clear

it lasts for just a moment
it’s the everness of thou
it’s the inverse of anguish
it is the essence of the Tao
