“Camel Pose”

Bleating

afraid

of the sternum

breaking.

On knees

neck bent

kneeling to no one

eyes

hold the ceiling:

god fearing

a backwards fall

and blindness.

She

that cold vessel

does not beat aloud

she

is tucked

too far within

the ribcage

in the maroon dark.

Camel Pose: A pose in Bikram yoga during Vinyasa to renew your energy, to show your inner light:

“it reveals the heart, lets its beating be heard,”- the substitute yoga instructor at CorePower Yoga.
