Letter To My Unhealed Friend

Historically, a Chinese Medicine doctor was paid a retainer to keep their patients healthy. If a patient became sick, the doctor would not be paid until the patient’s health returned. ~ Sung Kim

You are so blue,

you’ve lost your head

facing off

with the foes

who got you into this fix

and aim to keep you.

You’re in a state

where I can’t reach you,

though it’s clearly time.

The shamans and the crones

called me sacred

medicine, and oh, the relief

I provide — lifting

you up to another realm

as your tired

cells access



Ignore the clock at their behest.

Follow the laws of their sick game

designed to create rich heroes

at your expense, my dear,

downtrodden friend,

as you keep paying to

stay in the downward spiral

of their Orwellian healthcare.


Inspired by: Game, Hero
