Poem 20160107

easy enough to count
the breaths
to breathe in
breath out
one

feel the tension
in your whole body–
make it tense
on purpose
two

and let it go
feeling muscles
go limp
droop
three

you did this
to yourself
or your body did it
to you
four

and now you have to
find some way to
even it all out
wait, what number–
one

    1. And you would think that something you do unconsciously, such as breathing, would be easy to track, since you can’t stop doing it. Monkey mind.
