Monkey Mind

Monkey in Tree

Monkey Mind

Swinging from branch to branch,

They howl and spit,

Chattering…yowling,

As on the mat I repose,

Hand each a banana:

Shutting them up.

To buy myself uneasy silence,

Brief respite before laughing,

Itching nose.

amusing exercise in self-discipline

Not that I have much,

Trying to still the monkey mind.
