SEA CHANGE

 

I am allergic to scallops.

Therapy will not help me.

Medication will not ameliorate it.

Meditation cannot change it.

Many people can enjoy scallops,

but I am not one of them.

It is hard for me to accept

that there are things about myself

which I will never be able to change.

I know that one day I must acknowledge

my particular and peculiar uniqueness,

like my allergy to scallops, and

be ready to change to shrimp.
