Crystal fences

monkey-bar and four-square
chainlink tricks my eyes

like in yoga:
now place your right thumb 6 inches from your eyes
now place your left thumb 6 inches behind the right
inhale focusing on the front
exhale
noticing two thumbs to the back
inhale focusing on the back
exhale
noticing two thumbs in the front

in your own perfect timing shift your gaze between both thumbs

but in walking
the sun 
the fence
were my yoga-thumbs
gazing at the chainlink
the morning light
was clear

seeing past the fence

clarity
more than crystal
