“THE MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR!” a poem a.k.a.: “A Mind-Matter-Body For Dottie!” October 21, 2018 – SUN dai
See! All the clever examples of “sympathetic magic?”
“We love to play games,: and-I-say-”It’s SO-TRAGIC!”
We revel in the misery and woe we (SEEM to) create:
I wonder IF it’s possible-NOT-to-do-this!
WE LOVE PLAYING GAMES! WE LOVE THE LIES!
They seem, I guess, so comforting! Is-this ANY surprise?
Psycho-somatic Illness?! – for – PSYCHOS WE-ALL-M U S T-BE,
To-allow the-medical-systems to flourish (pause) CONSTANT-a-LY!
Are we sick? or just-seeking? (pause) Seeking some balance,
IF we’re balancing,
For-our-bodies TO WORK;
Shouldn’t-we-AID-their-process, Good Turk,
And not be hostile towards IT, but kiss & cradle?
But, NO! We resist (pause) persisting in The Fable:
THAT TRANSFERENCE EXISTS;
And, so, our LOVE of MAGIC persists!
“WE’RE NOT SICK!” say some less-magic Teaching;
But CLEANSING! Towards health! (Am I really preaching?)
To THE CHOIR? Or – have we lost all song,
So the Magic of MEDICINE and TALISMANS – may (continue to) rule us – long!
