A FREE SCORE

My earthly mother says hush
Of all the tucked up yearns
Find rest in delirious moments
Work while thy leg is thick
Stare not at half-naked women
With bellies like busted balloon
Eyes front, face out like a soldier
That’s the way to yoga the trials
Stand on your jig-sawed manners
Your head is the animal you hunt
Look beyond the twisted lines
Life is a score you’ll learn to keep
Your success; the pride of my breasts
Only then will the spirits lay mute
Hush my child, she says….
