Uneasiness (October 30)

In the dark,
windy, cold,
skitter unsettled
                       unsettling as they
                   the headlight beams
across the road giddy and
                  unpredictable like
           on Halloween

a position without pain

The restorative yoga teacher says
to move to a position where nothing
in your body is calling attention to 
pain, and I snort and think that there
is no such position for me, and I wonder
if there is such a position for anyone, 
and then I think, surely there must 
have been such a position at SOME
point in my past, and I realize that,
if there ever was, I can't remember 
it right now, and the grief is another
dull pain I add to the list of pains to
ignore right now while I try to focus
on just breathing in and out and in.
