Knuckles in Your Rhomboid

Well, I heard about this "bodywork", it sounded kind of neat

It relieved pain and anguish from all over, even feet.

I asked around, and picked a school, they call Alive and Well

The person recommending goes there often ------you can tell.


I interviewed with Jocylyn, a cheerful, centered lass

She's executive director so I thought I'd take a class.

But first so I could get a sense, of what I'd soon be learnin

I thought I'd better sample her technique and ...end of yearnin?


I got up on the table, in a room so bright and warm

And I knew almost at once, that she could never do me harm

Gently probing for inactive muscles, or ones much too taut

Rebalancing and testing she then told me what she sought.


I felt within, as time progressed, a sense of calm and ease

And started into thinking that, this bodywork's a breeze

When she asked me to roll over on my stomach, I was blissful

Little did I realize I'd soon receive...a "fistful".

with a firm and even pressure, she would probe longside my spine

Starting at my neck, heading down and feeeeeeling fiiine

We were cruising past my shoulders, I was really feeling swell

Then I saw a mental image, and something HURT LIKE HELL,

Right there before my eyes, I was remembering quite clearly

A time I got hit from behind, and injured very dearly

He held a pole and thrust it so, of strength there was no lack

He must have aimed, so as to meet, my unsuspecting back


All this I was reliving, many years had been since then

And I WASN'T looking forward, to it happening again


With her knuckles in my Rhomboid, and sweat upon my brow

If I ever astral travel, will you PLEASE let it be NOW

She kept it up, a steady, even pressure all the while

The pain got less, the picture's gone, I just got back my smile


That pain I'd carried with me, far beneath my conscious thought

Was restricting thought and feeling, life was harder than it ought.

We re-established range of motion, to some fibrous, stringy tissues

That connected me in PRESENT, to some PRIOR thorny issues.

We'd released pain inside me, left more pliant, softer traces

And a thumb up in my armpit gave me very funny faces.


If delight is your intention or you wish a chance to grow.

When you feel good you are happy and that's valuable to know

You can fill your mind with theories, philosophic thus and so

Or get some knuckles in your Rhomboid, take a breath and then, LET GO
