A Cure for Cancer
Consider the single cell microorganism
Motilely absorbing sustenance, senseless
in the acrobatics of immortality
growing, dividing, growing, dividing
Life imitating life
accumulating complexity, diversity,
cells opening out from infinite regression
demanding expanding territory,
redefinition, delineation, demarcation.
Cultivation of domestication implies
devastation of the wild weed.
Pruning the power of the divine monarch
Poisoning the wellspring to discourage
unfettered proliferation of perceived antagonists.
If life is the disease,
surely death is the cure.
