Group Therapy

By Michael Lee Johnson

Group Therapy

Wind chimes.
It's going to rain tonight, thunder.
I'm going to lead the group tonight talking
about Rational Emotive Therapy,
belief challenges thought change,
Dr. Albert Ellis.
I'm a hero in my self-worship,
self-infused patient of my pain,
thoughtful, probabilistic atheism
with a slant toward Jesus in private.
Rules roll gently creeping
through my body with arthritis
a hint of mental pain.
Sitting in my 2001 Chevy S-10 truck,
writing this poem, late as usual.
It's going to rain, thunder
heavy tonight.
