KEEP COMING BACK
(8/4/07)


it's ironic
I think
that a program
pointing out
the sins of self
will then
present
each member
with the opportunity
to take the stage
at every meeting
and spew
their sickness
upon an addicted
audience

sometimes
it's their malaise
in the guise
of recovery
but it is still
a matter
of ego
eking out
a new existence
within the structure
of twelve
steps

I anxiously
await
my turn

I have
something
important
to say
