On the Way to Your First AA Meeting

by Morgan Harlow

On the way to your first AA meeting, there
is, still, the possibility you are an alien, unknown,
beside yourself. Aliens Anonymous cropping
up, a chapter in every city. The memory of thinking
in some other language, an attitude, an approach
towards Existence. At a stoplight on some crowded
corner, you wait for the moon to change. The best is  
yet to come, intergalactic travel, light, speed.
