The Cure is in the Poison

Shadow on Beach

I’ve been hurt by yoga.


Done wrong

Imposed upon me

By someone else

Or me

I didn’t go near them again. Not those anyway. But then I did.

After a while.

And I did them differently like tasting poison that could only kill me if I drank too much or too quickly.

And I approached the poses like a frightened animal.

Entered the poses remembering the first time and every way I knew they hurt me and I used them to put myself back together the way I was meant to be.

Now that I knew.
