MIRACLE REVISITED
(10/1/18)

strange
to walk into
only my second
AA meeting
of the year

after
so many meetings
over the years

stranger yet
to see
someone
who came into
the program
at about
the same
time
as I

18 years
ago

both
much older
or course

but also
younger
in a way

that hopeless
frustration
gone
from our
now calm
eyes

we have
finally
grown into
this life

after
a very late
start

so here
we are
tonight

sober

smiling

glad
to know
that each other
is still
alive
