It is supposed to be “fierce,”
this meditation,
being present,
fully alive
to my pain.

But why would I
want to do that?
There is pain enough
in the world,
in my small world,
in my hands, my feet,
in my heart.  

This meditation promises
calmness, clarity,
better sleep.
Less pain,
more love.
A magic pill.  

Take two
and call me in the morning.
