State of Relaxation
(Listen to this piece in season 1 episode 29 of the podcast)
Steamy water dissolving scented salts
where I’ll soak and read a magazine or a book
body submerged until completely soothed.
searching the pantry, selecting salty snacks to
crunch crunch and sweet custards to
crooning soulsters, beckoning my head to nod
and my hips to sway.
or scenes of a favorite show
ushering forth laughter from my belly or intrigue
marked by twinkling eyes.
slipping on my head scarf, pulling
back the sheets and calling it a night
no matter the time of day.
bathing, snacking, singing, watching, and slipping
my way towards relaxation.
