Groups that resolve, don’t

avoid conflicts, mature toward

healthy functioning


never aspire

to be an interesting

patient – but I am


chemo appointment

AIDs manifestations spread

puking, I seek love


all but I came from

a pre-sitting potluck – why,

you’re not invited?


sangha growth process:

total denial, exile,

straight talk about stuff


which is what we did:

turns out as a newcomer

I just didn’t know


someone’s cell went off

mid-meditation — I’m not

pissed – it is working!


they always greet me —

when I open the laptop

— firing up writing.
