i don't want to be an apothecary
and carry palliatives and bromides,
or epsom salts and Depends, distillates,
rose water or pseudopanaceas.

*

I don't want to be almost a pharmacy.
next to almost a bank with frenetic hours
with lines around the block waiting
for covid booster shots.

*

Let me cater to the natural man,
not aspiring to be a creature of AI.
Let my opening and closing hours
coincide with circadian rhythms.

*

Let my employees be brined in radiance
from the glow of pharmaceutical nirvana
in homeopathicessences, succussed from
the soul of plants and the isness of all that is...
