Entreaty to Therapist

Locked within arthritic body
Yogi, dancer, freedom seeks
To the savior of the moment
She prostrates herself, beseeches ~
Knead away the rigid tightness
Unlock joints, issues stored deep
Cleanse the settled-in arthropathy
Into darkness, let light seep
To warm me, soothe me.
Let me move unfettered
Let me flexibly test flux
Let the tensions gently melt away
‘Neath your well-trained touch
