The Anonymity Wave

Remember what we say
each time a meeting ends.
“Please remember
our commitment
to honor each other’s
anonymity.
‘What you hear here,
whom you see here,
when you leave here,
let it stay here.’”
To which we respond,
“Hear, hear!”
So what do we do in a group
of non-Recovery people?
One-on-one it’s no problem
away from  listening ears.
You have the right to tell
anyone you see, saying
you’re in a named fellowship
but you have no such liberty
as to the other.
Sometimes we explain
knowing each other
with, “We have mutual friends.”
But if you see what might be asked,
just try an anonymous wave.
