Eyelids Tight

Eyelids tight
Mountain pose
A prayer
Lingering longer than typical
Forever please
Or twenty minutes
Steaming streaming cleansing
Drenching tangled hair
Pouring over body gullies
Speeding down the hungry drain
A feckless defensive maneuver
Attempting to thwart the deluge
It is incessant
Their daily dose of deception
Lies flood our consciousness
Seep into our subconscious
Crashing waves of stress
Cutting battle scars through brains and psyches
We’re weak in the knees from the
Constant churn teeming endlessly
The mountain stands
So far
For now
Rinsed
Patient
Strong
Awaiting a righteous end
