Philosopher

“I came out of the

womb a philosopher,”

she said.

I wondered how that

affected those around her.

I considered this

and my own experience.

I was thoughtful,

quipping,

“I came out of the kidney

a Philosopher Stone,

because I am inert and

painful,

but alchemically

change others.”
