Confessions of a Counselor

Counseling is a service, and it’s ok to challenge or question it, even when involuntary.

pen and paint have been much gentler
with me than most other forms
formalized as ‘therapy’

they’ve so often made my trusting
fool a target for an expert’s
drive n’ insecurities
,

then they’ll parade the valleys in
in our history for experts
itchin’ jowls for hints
and clues,

oh, and if it’s even even worth
my mention, i was once
the expert too
.
