The Fleming Method

Another in the series, in which I make up poems for the titles of articles that thinks might by me.

Relaxation for Concentration, Stress Management, and Pain Control Using the Fleming Method

Lie on your back
like a frog with a finger to its chest.
Kick your legs.
Kick again.
Kick quite a lot.
Now give up.
Feel your skin,
thinner than paper, thinner than
that film between layers of onion grade fives put under microscopes.
Feel the skin under the finger wrinkle.
Feel the lead in the air seeping in.
Kick. Kick half-heartedly.
Lie back,
all muscle and skin.
Lie back.
