the face thin and sunken
the firm and jutted-out

chin protruding
from a stone-looking face
in total stillness

he sits
in his chair where
all of his points

were made and won
an argument never lost
upon him

were any
lost by him

whether right or wrong
his point of view

never yielded, the courage
of his convictions
were maintained at least

that's the way he saw it
although everyone else
called him stubborn

cantankerous, cussed
he gave up never an inch
to any opponent

even now after
fighting to his last breath
he still maintains his position

Writer's note-the title plays the key role
in this piece. It is assumed to be part of the poem in two places

I understand this one too.

The writer of this piece doesn't budge either. He leaves it to the reader to work on it, open his mind, and sit like a mountain, perhaps the way the Buddha does. At least that's what I see, though I know if I claim to actually "see" the Buddha, I'm suppoosed to kill him.
