TRANSFORMATIONAL TREATMENT OPTIONS
(12/23/15)


in order
to get the attention
of the addict

the language
barrier
must first
be breached

flowery
technocratic speech
is of little use
to us

we don't
understand you

but
profanity

depravity

criminality

immorality

these
can be
the verbiage coins
of our recovery
realm

we've lived
that language
for all
too long

if you delve
into our dialect
you may just
get through

otherwise
just hand us
a pamphlet

let us be
on our way
