the wheel of medicine @ 01:11 pm

the wheel of medicine must keep turning

one proud hand forcing it forward
to heal the sick
slacken the suffering

but the wheel, now
is so slowed
by the strong hand of comerce
that holds it back
to collect every drop of blood it can feed off
squeezed from the flesh caught in the mill

In all things . . .

How do you balance what it takes to survive in this country and your desire to live above your lower self? To live here, can you ever really be pure? Free from all connection to violence, ego, investment in outcome . . .
