The listener

They said my name
means healer

but I was named
after that guy
on TV

how could it be true
a medicine man
in the land
of the dead

the realm
of hungry ghosts

the witch hunt—
hands of ooze . .

What is this place—
they got everyone

knowing who I am
wearing a hoody
on the outskirts

thumbing along
the smooth edge
of another jade jigsaw

making contact
with this false wall
of rustling stiff hedges

of nothing
