a medicine dance

on

one way to provoke a superficial mad mimesis
– tell a person their deepest sense is nonsense
that despite degree and school they must be taught
how to think

send them on this unpleasant cruise
medicine blurring self, a smudge,
advise against spiritual succour
what priests misunderstand

watch them, lost, burst to return
so frantic, violent to their own
insides to break back out ,
forget

in rare light glimpses
all past practise,
their very sense, of dance
