Secret letter to Coyote Peterson: can you be stung by poetry?

Dear Mr. Peterson,

I am writing to express my admiration for your unique craft of being stung by the most dangerous insects on this planet. To me, your work is a true work of art. It is a testament to your bravery, curiosity, and dedication to exploring the natural world.

I must admit, I have always been fascinated by poison and its role in the arts. From the use of lead in painting to the venom of bees and wasps, poison has a significant place in the creative process. And watching you confront these venomous creatures with such grace and aplomb is truly inspiring.

In fact, I would go so far as to say that I would prefer to be stung by an executioner’s wasp a thousand times over attending one of Claudia de Brij’s tedious conferences. Your work is a refreshing reprieve from the mundanity of everyday life, and it has saved me from the horrors of Ms. de Brij’s interminable presentations.

In short, Mr. Peterson, I am in awe of your bravery and your dedication to your craft. You are a true artist, and I am grateful for the joy and enlightenment that your work brings to my life.

Why did you never get your own Netflix show? It is incomprehensible to me. Real talent in our society is so often overlooked.

Can you be stung by my Poetry?

To return some of the impiration I got from your shows I would like to give you a free copy of my latest collection of poetry: Poetry to Read in the Dark. Can you be stung by poetry and is it the same as being stung by insects? There is a significant role in their for poisons, even though they may be of a different kind than you have bravely experienced:

Thank you, Mr Peterson, for taking the time to read this and perhaps my poetry. One of my dreams is that you would actually recite one of my poems on your show, to a wild animal perhaps. Just a daydream, I know, but hope can create such wild tunnelings in the bedrooms of the bored.

Yours sincerely,

Martijn Benders

No, no: I am not a 'guru' of some sorts: I'm just a guy that happened to be succesful at fighting of the addictions dystopia had blessed me with.

Now I am devoting my time to helping others as a mycotherapist.

I know a lot about mushrooms and I have devised methods of employing them in your diet that will help your physical and emotional wellbeing.

If you experience problems and you think I might be able to help you, please go to my contact page and let's have a chat.

I wrote a book titled 'Amanita Muscaria: The Book of the Empress'. That book presents 'the big picture', the one you've perhaps been missing out on. It is the story of what really happened with humanity the last 1000 years, and how wild mushrooms came to be demonized, and how Amanita Muscaria/ Fly Agaric can help you regain your true self and at the same time make this planet a better place for everyone.

The book can be bought at regular dutch bookstores and soon at international bookstores too. And to be complete: you can also buy it from me directly using crypto. Just donate an amount of crypto to me that would equal about 33 euros and I will send you a signed copy:

If you want to donate me some crypto to help my cause (fighting the benzodiazepine epedemic) your contribution would also be most welcome.

I am also known as a writer and a poet. As of 2023 I have written about 18 books. Lots of them are available for free from my homepage: I have never been much of a kapitalist, and I believe that good poetry has a healing effect on people.

Drop me a line if you want to ask me something or collaborate on anything. I wish you a great life, and lots of luck and great guidance on the path you are walking.
