A.A.D. Analysis

By Jane (O’Connor) Deering Fish

 

“A.D.D. Analysis” first appeared in Curry Arts Journal 2004.

 

 

weeding through creativity,

 

creating a wise study,

 

studying my distraction,

 

distracting my construction.

 

asking mom and dad

to ease nightly drinking,

being told to mind my business.

I won’t repeat their history.

 

mixing greens with oranges,

believing in weed and Adderall,

concocting my own prescription,

cracking out plus stoning in,

speeding up then slowing down.

 

constructing a diversion,

 

diverting the denial,

 

denying History

 

Repeats.
