WOULD WE GO TO WAR FOR YOGA
Orginal Poem by Eduardo

 

what if there was no difference 

between theory and practice and doctrines 

were lived in like a night without stars 

 

what if practice was merely 

the exertion of the body a teacher leading

your breathing expanding the ribcage

 

learning the things you’re born with like breathing 

so that there would be no doctrinal disputes among nations 

would we go to war for yoga

 

across the table our opinions 

would matter less than the postures of our bodies

alone or interlocked

 

and belief would be a form of wisdom 

gliding across the generations 

like a flat pebble skipping on the water of a lake
