Step 9 of the ZA Twelve-Step Program by Dominic Daley

What do I say when you open the door, if you open the door?

That it wasn’t my fault?

That I wasn’t the only one?

That I just started shambling one day?

That it made me so damn hungry?

That I’m all better now?

That I’ve had my shots, gone to therapy sessions, group talks?

That I still wake up gagging, the taste of blood filling my mouth?

That he was just stood there, quivering, in bright shoes and a sunhat?

That you screamed for him to run to you?

That he was delicious?

Maybe I’ll just leave the flowers.
