Child's Pose

Balasana

A way of hitting back. One wave
is the dreaded belt, sailing backward,
jerking forward, striking skin.
Large tides in which a small soul
swims. The child posed as a mouse
stunned into temporary death
until the predator forgets.

The child posed as a house of cold,
ungiving rafters. All alone, the child
is architect of hunger; face in shadow,
knees, feet, forehead touch the floor.
A small soul's scattered breath
and heartbeat echo, sounding out
the home inside the house.
A way of getting back--

the heels exposed, the unprotected soles--
bulbs of daffodils in snow.
