in the kitchen

she said
i don’t think everybody
who hits rock bottom
winds up in therapy. i know
they say you have to hit
rock bottom but—

and i was about to say,
it’s not about the percent
who climb
from rock bottom to

therapy but that
many in therapy
come from
rock bottom
that is, hit
a low-low-sad-sad-blues
point of their own
and that moves them

but it wasn’t about
winning or losing
this damned argument
which wasn’t really an
so, i
didn’t say what i thought.

too many wars start
from petty conflicts i thought
which is the last
thing now that this world needs.
