#yogaeverydamnday

I want to be a cat
soft, strong, supple 
yoga nidrasana in my sleep
paw behind my head, scratch my ear
dragonfly my resting pose 
fall into the splits

I want to be a cat
not a fat piece of flesh struggling 
into hanumanasana
limbs flailing in pincha mayurasana
I’ll jump six times my height
my body will stretch out like a rug

I want to be a cat
and I’ll own you, not the other way round
finger flick, double tap
cats don’t  worry about 
likes and shares and follows
they sleep upside down

I want to be a cat
so I dream with paws stretched out
so I warm my face in the sunlight
so I free myself from all of you
so you adore me
and I don’t give a fuck
