I Eat in My Head During Yoga. ~ Michael Mark {Poem}

When the teacher says Gorilla,

I hear Quesadilla.

High Plank sounds like flank steak.

You know it does.

 

He says Mountain Pose, I see a fluffy cloud of whipped cream

on a sundae.

 

Boat makes me crave a Banana Boat, which I will eat directly

after the sundae.

 

Downward Dog is the bun, mustard, onions and the

grilled frank—turkey, tofu, kosher—being swallowed down.

 

Supine Twist is a martini with a little turned lemon slice.

 

Yogi is yogurt, frozen, swirls of mango and pistachio—

no one likes pistachio, so I don’t have to share.

 

Table Top is Thanksgiving dinner. A long table, all the fixings.

 

Triangle is a wedge of pie: blueberry, cherry, all the creams.

Sometimes I smell pizza!

 

Forward Fold is Jell-O mold—go ahead say it, it’s perfect.

 

She says Back Bend—I’m tasting Cornish hen.

 

Warrior 2 sounds like second helpings of BBQ.

 

Namaste—Yoga’s over, I’m mad-hungry: ‘Get out my way.’

 

*Anything else said in class will usually be heard as Chocolate or Cheese.
