Suffering an existential crisis? The pain of heartbreak? Psychic bail out? Disconnect between mind and body? General malaise or melancholia? The Royale Elixir Pharmacia du Amor is a poetry pharmacy that prescribes just the right poem to heal you. Wewill listen carefully to your symptoms, assess your situation, and provide you with a poem scrolled in a pill bottle, along with detailed directions on how to consume it.

We believe that poetry and poetic text, when read in context at the right time, has the potential to heal, inform, alleviate, and shift our thinking & feeling. We're so obsessed with the recent health care debate that we've nearly forgotten about other forms of healing, just as powerful, and just as significant -- to reunite mind and body, to tend to the interior life.

We accept all pre-existing conditions, we can cover your dependents, we will not turn you away due to lack of coverage. The Royale Elixir Pharmacia du Amor wants to send you a poem, the right poem, for the right reason, today.

Love is limitless.

All proceeds from this project will support an upcoming girl's poetry project on the island of Zanzibar, off the coast of Dar es Salaam, in Tanzania, on the Indian Ocean. Check out for more information on the Textile as Text: Kanga Poetry Project, Zanzibar 2010.
