Steel needles

silver, clean,

pierce skin

at points

ordained by

ancient sage.

Still as a cat

I watch

the needles'

slight tremor,

tiny aerials

transmitting ease

to painful sinew.

My western mind


to this jade

of wisdom,

this meridian


ancient east,

modern west,

to meet

in my left knee.
