On the sixth day of Christmas…

Gamblers Anonymous

My team
Is anonymous
My God
Seems anonymous.
Sometimes—often
He is with my
Anonymous brothers
And often I
Am with them—
And with him.
But not always
Which is when
I need them both.

–by Norman Clayton, 2004, from Food for the Soul: Selections from the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen Writers’ Workshop, edited by Elizabeth Maxwell and Susan Shapiro.
