ONE -STEP RECOVERY PLAN


ONE -STEP RECOVERY PLAN

The cat circles and weaves the ankles 
of women weeping over faithless spouses 
& loved ones who love the depths of the bottle,
or the sting of the needle more than life itself.
The cat cries, gently cuffs them for attention,
but they ignore her teachings—history repeats 
itself, and the moment crests on a wave,  
rides toward an uncertain future, 
perhaps in a different form, 
then slips back into the void.
