April prompt #13

A GESTURE THAT IS SO COMMON YOU DON’T THINK ABOUT MAKING IT

Mary’s #2

 

Don’t think about walking down the stairs.

Don’t think about tying your shoes.

Whatever you do, don’t think about

taking off a pullover sweater

or backing up the car. How do you

turn on your computer? How

do you brush your teeth? Drape

your coat over the back of a chair?

 

Funny how the brain works,

how long-term potentiation

takes over. Remember when

you learned to ride a bike?

Or when you learned to type?

Music to set the rhythm,

the weirdness of qwerty.

 

Now I’m going to try it:

to type the word “poem”

and see where it goes.

Pinky upper right,

ring finger upper right,

middle finger upper left,

index finger lower right.
