Holy Fellow Bishop


O holy fellow bishop, pray here you big & strong archetypal prelate
as those forgotten, ham-strung, ugly & phony-baloney lonely relate
to fantastical pig flu seasons lasting 365 days by which to vacillate to dreamed-up piggy flu seasons of 365 days by which to vaccinate
Black socks relax in a drawer while a blue sock grieves for its mate
as certainly it's too damn late to slaughter the pregnant Sharon Tate

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Fluoride is not an essential nutrient (National Research Council [NRC] 1993; Institute of Medicine [IOM] 1997, NRC 2006) . No disease has ever been linked to a fluoride deficiency. It has never been shown that ingested fluoride is needed to produce decay-free teeth. Not a single biological process has been shown to require fluoride. On the contrary there is extensive evidence that fluoride can interfere with many important biological processes. Fluoride interferes with numerous enzymes (Waldbott 1978) . In combination with aluminum, fluoride interferes with G-proteins (Bigay 1985,1987) . Such interactions give aluminum-fluoride complexes the potential to interfere with signals from growth factors, hormones and neurotransmitters (Strunecka & Patocka 1999; Li 2003) . More and more studies are indicating that fluoride can interfere with biochemistry in fundamental ways (Barbier 2010) .

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
