This humorous story and my friend’s cajoling have caused me to once again seek therapy

He says, all my friends
who were in therapy
gradually got better
apartments, lives, relationships
and then there was me
just gravitating towards
therapists at parties
for nearly a decade

and here I am, watching him
and receiving phone calls
from my friends
about their own therapy sessions

then, there i am
perusing the internet
and leaving voice messages
trying to sound like a sane person
“Hello…this is…_____.
Are you accepting new patients?”
