poetry - in the accupuncture workshop

In the acupuncture workshop

the breeze closes one door
then opens another - literally

Each of us comes seeking healing
for maladies never discussed.

Then we wait.
and participate in the group
wherein we do not speak
yet get connected.

I have no idea if this treatment will work.

If this seems disconcerting I wonder -
How much different is this
from a blind-faith trust in medication
and otherwise invasive procedures
Such as they are.

So many have faith without even knowing
If those procedures work at all

Give me then, instead
The cool breeze that opened the door.
