Today's poem is by Eric Schwerer
The First Chakra
What is this tumbling, tumbling: the first chakra.
Most anger can be transformed to pity: the
First chakra. It is what is just below the
Genitalia. It is the ball of light that
Turns above your head. What is this childhood? It
Is a pit we've dug to get to China with.
To get to modern medicine. Most of us
Had a little shovel. We dug little pits.
There is a natural posture you spend your
Adulthood undoing it. There's medicine
For anxiousness but most children don't need it.
Here is the first chakra's secret: you will be
Distracted meditating forgetfulness.
The first chakra clicks, clicks, makes a little hiss.
Are you angry here is the hole. Are you with
It. If you're upside down you'll have to go slow.
