Modern Medicine

If happiness could be discovered

in that hole in the wall where

even non-believers are stunted

by magic,

if lasting health could just be turned

on with the flick of a switch when

modern medicine isn’t enough to give

some control to its patient,

and life closed to a cover of

glitter and diamonds we would look

at our bedrooms from all angles and be

very thorough spring cleaners.
