Reflections 2015: thoughts on vanishing

am i a middle-aged hour glass
slowing sifting blood cells like sand
from my head to my toes?
the tips of my fingers and nose grow cold —

tell me, yoga

if i do a head stand, can i reverse time
without losing consciousness as the waves
of blood crash into my head and old memories
drift and filter through my brain?

can meditation save
what remains of the mortality slowly
vanishing from my veins?
