Self-Portrait Reflecting Judgment

melting into her yoga mat

drenched and satisfied

every pose attempted

incremental progress noted

breath gradually

returning to baseline

ahhh… savasana

 

agreeably exhausted thoughts

screech to a fever-pitched halt

 

instructor’s reflective musings

pose eternal existential query

“Who am I?”

 

brain, auto-piloting

spews vile

matter-of-fact response

“felon”

 

“woman!”

she self-corrects

instantaneously engaged

full-scale nuclear

thought- warfare

“mother!”

“friend!”

“helper!”

 

feebly futile

improvisation

fails

 

she reflects the worldview

rebarbative shone

through judgment smeared

glasses

echoing from black holes

across the universe

(she can hear it shriek-babble

in all the tongues

of the galaxy)

 

condemnation absent

contemplation

 

concertina remnants

adulterate

lacerate
