breathe two, three, four – March 26

3.26

Stress. Good stress. But it’s all

stress.  My body feeling the shake

tremor, inner squeech. Mind racing

in anticipation, when resolution

is not yet really in the cards.

 

Breathe two, three, four. Deep

cleansing breath now. Close

the eyes. In through the nose

out through the mouth. Slow

exhale.

 

Where did we learn these things

to “trick the body” as LBJ said

when he put on his “jammies”

for his mid-day nap.

 

So I will sit in my big green chair.

And open a book and close my eyes.

And breathe two, three, four….

DAMNN…two,

three, four…
