It’s a Tool I Use

Overeaters Anonymous
recognizes nine tools:
a plan of eating, sponsorship,
meetings, telephone, writing,
literature, action plan,
anonymity and service.
This Recovery Daily Dose
Has continued now
for three thousand
seven hundred eighty-eight days,
of using tools.
The tool of writing, yes,
but perhaps more than that
The tool of service.
I offer this up to the public
trusting the people who might need it
will see it at the time it might be
an act of service to them.
