Forward Fold

by little camilla jean

Forward fold.

(He actually wasn’t nice to me…)

Hands to elbows. Rag doll. Nod yes, shake no.

(He used my secrets indiscreetly…)

I lift halfway and place palms on thighs, crown forward like I’m supposed to.

(He used me.)

I forward fold.

Now I have to rise, feeling every vertebra as I go, and stand tall in mountain pose.

(Will I surmount this?)

Hands to heart’s center.

(I don’t have to act strong because of him…)

I swan dive.

(I fell beautifully…)

I’m back to rag doll now.

(She’s cool. I like her.)

Nod yes. Shake no.
Yes, shake no.
