Deep inside my roiling gut sits a gremlin that will not name its name. It laughs at me as I clutch myself, arms wrapped tight around the fraying bandages that splice my soul and spirit together. If only this were a fairy tale and Rumpelstiltskin was its name! If only I could shit it out once and for all and be done with this mad parasite that sucks my strength, infects my vision, sours the juice from the sweetest of fruits and blights the brave green seedlings sprouting every spring. But no it seems I am condemned to harbor this unwanted guest forever and a day. Is there no charm, no philter no matter how bitter that will exorcise this monstrous chancre? Where is the Prospero who will draw this Caliban from deep within my desiccation and remove it into exile? I know, I know it is a thing that must be done by me alone. No magic, no magus could pry this blackness loose. It is my charge to find the chemistry that will finally flush this poisonous microbe from my vitals. Alas, I have not found the formula with which to weave my cloak of redemption. I am not cured. The gremlin laughs. I shudder. 2011 RC deWinter
