MEG DELLENBAUGH, or Don’t Miss This

So one of my ideas that I’ve mentioned here a few times is writing a DON”T MISS THIS collection of poems. A poetry guidebook to some of what I love. Meg Dellenbaugh would be on that list. And although I don’t relate to much of the language of some kinds of processes (Cranial Sacral. What connects them. What happens when they’re touched) I LOVE CRANIAL SACRAL THERAPY. Maybe it could just be called TOUCH. Here’s a formal definition
Cranial sacral therapy (also known as craniosacral therapy) is a gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. The goal is to release compression in those areas which alleviates stress and pain.

When I visit Meg
hard to know when
I haven’t been able
to see her for
a while because
when she’s here I’m not
yesterday when I
visited Meg lay down on her
massage table covered in white
I’d prefer
red silk when I
visit Meg
happy walking
in her door
first floor apartment
for an hour
I don’t know
what she does
not really she
moves my body
gently not massage
something more
magical and I
leave feeling
lighter ready
to come back
to Meg soon.

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
