A Philip Whalen Mala

by the terrific Peter Jaeger.

  And in his hands
a long wooden string of Buddhist Rosary beads, which he keeps
moving. I ask him which mantra he is doing—but he tells me
in Zen, you don’t have to bother with any of that.
You can just play with the beads

(Joanne Kyger “Phillip Whalen’s Hat”)
