How I Spent Today


My alternating interests ruled today.
At times I read a book I’ve got by heart,
and in between I tried to grasp the way
our bodies handle energy. So part
of me inhaled two hundred years ago,
the balance breathing out fresh heresy
on standard care and protocols. I know
enough to argue with the pharmacy.

Environment, nutrition, cancer, sun:
it now appears I gulped the powdered drink
self interest-mixed and network-poured. A ton
of press distracted us with flash, I think.
The only truth false science can achieve?
The more it’s said, the less I do believe.
