: LAURIE CORZETT
: In the Healing

In the healing temple Dark circles wander halls of wonders, taste smoldering ash, tuck forgivenesses into pockets long tattered by unbound despair, disrepair. Deep hallowed night of chanting and sacrifice; mist, coalescing water, acid rain, cleanse for slaughter. Moist fear, angers and traditions painted into blood, run as free droplets, mix with rain, mix with mist, mix with ritual. Purged, ready for transubstantiation. Arise, give thanks and alms. Touch the hand of wellness. Join and be free.

: LAURIE CORZETT
: Shell Game 

Eggs drop – shards and viscous yuck. A mess, better left unbroken; walk softly, whisper, agree to be agreeable. Breakfasting on soggy cereal or just a cuppa. Smiling lamely through the livelong day. "Please don't let me be a burden. Please, allow me, walk upon my crooked spinal stairway while I carry your petty parcels in my cracked, bleeding teeth." Eggshells break monthly inside my womb. But we don't speak of that. Not polite. Not politic. Like religion and horse races, consuming addictions. ‘Cause we're alright, ya know. We've nothing to complain of. Got our daily cakes and tea, obeisance to some faith based Queen, jolly good, jelly roll. On Easter, in the blessing of Spring, we paint sweet pastels gently upon hard-boiled shells, promise to be good little lambs. The crust of the Earth protects primeval fire and gemstones. Seed of the Sun bears a glorious array of multi-hued fruits upon which we feast for energy. Part of this complete breakfast rounded with an omelet for growth and repair.
