In May of 2014, my old friend Coleman died of an overdose. One of many to go that way. Shared Ayahuasca visions led us to understand that addiction, in the spiritual sense, is a very old distortion of the Dyonisian ghost - a persona stalking humanity since the first drunkenness. Surplus grain makes alcohol, to facilitate festivities or to oppress masses of people.

Danglin' from the high E string,
can't fix that broken toy.
