Mindfulness?



As if we all are mindless, silly, dull,
unless we train our minds in ancient ways,
as if our minds are useless when they're full
and work much better when we're in a daze,
concentrating on the way we're standing,
feeling feet, flat, firmly on the floor.
As if this helps us cope with our demanding
lives. Meditation from a time before
modernity can't help us now, at least
not much; we're brilliant and our minds expand,
increasing exponentially like yeast,
in proportion to the knowledge which we've crammed,
we just need sleep, not hippies who are cynics,
fleecing us in meditation clinics.
