Thank you Poetry Society for this wonderful opportunity to pound onthe keys in a tiny cabin like phone booth. One more.....The Alexander Technique She sits.

Translucent.

I place one hand on her

neck and skull

and the other on her forehead.

I am holding a Universe.

She breathes, waiting---

for me to begin the standing

and the rest

happens. Cate McNider 6/24/15 first published here :)
