James, Such a profound poem! This poem spoke to me! I especially like the first stanza:

Reminiscent of cells dividing, the brain splitting in two,

wants overtaking needs, needs swallowed up

as greed becomes one’s protein re-emerging as single cells

spreading neuro-degenerate disease of the mind.

Indeed, greed is as a disease. Best wishes always, Amy
