there are moments when
i forget – dicing onions,
eagle pose. there are

moments when i remember –

in both hands, my

in both hands, my
fingertips are still
tingling from cutting
into last night’s
cherry bomb
peppers, so sweet
and delicious a
memory
to meditate on
in child’s pose

after awhile, the

in adho mukha

thoughts that come

thoughts that come
while hanging
mid-air, dhanurasana,

wrapped in the
corner of yoga
practice, hold,
no one knows,
exhale, om
