Some people eat peanuts
and their tongue and face begins to swell.
Some people put on a wool scarf
and a rash developes on their skin everywhere
the scarf touches.
Some people drink alcohol and they transform

Science may one day isolate the genes, or missing genes,
that cause some to be able to drink sociably,
while others must drink alcoholically.
Today, do like other allergy sufferers do,
don’t touch those things which you are allergic to.
Recovery is to understand your allergy.
Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
