kept the monk in mind,

conscious breathing, saw the cracks

then swung the hammer

Thich Nhat Hanh has written many books on the topic of mindfulness;  I’m currently reading “Anger”, one of two books I own that he wrote.

lifted the hammer,
brought it down with all my force,
saw the concrete crack

day 2024
ninety-minutes spent
removing last night’s snowfall
from asphalt, concrete

grabbed the cinderblock,
feeling the rough – almost sharp – concrete,
bite into my hands
