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.
