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
